Volunteers play an important role in the life of the Society of the Cincinnati and Anderson House. From leading tours of Anderson House to researching rare materials in the library, the volunteers contribute significantly to our ability to accomplish a wide range of projects. The Society is always seeking interested individuals to join this growing and dedicated group.
Most museum volunteers serve as docents, leading guided tours of Anderson House during regular museum hours. Opportunities are also available for museum volunteers interested in helping with public programs, usually held on weeknights or weekends. Volunteers may also take on a variety of other projects, depending on their interests and the needs of the museum and library.
No previous experience is required in order to volunteer. Volunteers should have an interest in the American Revolution, the history of Washington, D.C., and/or historic sites. Museum docents should enjoy working with people and have excellent oral communication and interpersonal skills. Volunteers must be at least eighteen years of age.
Museum internships and library fellowships are also available for qualified applicants. Please see our Scholarship section for more information.
