Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers play a vital role in the life of the Society of the Cincinnati. From leading tours of its headquarters, Anderson House, to researching collection items, 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 for the public and special groups. Library volunteers assist with activities relating to collections management and research. Opportunities are also available for 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 staff.
