Help Make A Difference - Become a DHS Volunteer!

DHS volunteers bring skills, life-experience, and energy to support the work of our staff as they make the valuable gift of their time. Our volunteers’ time and talent are vital to the success of the Delaware History Museum, Jane and Littleton Mitchell Center for African American History, Read House & Gardens, the Research Library and all areas of programming and operation at DHS.

If you are college-age or older, have some free time during a week day or weekend day, and are looking for an interesting, enriching experience, then volunteering at DHS may be for you!

The possibilities are endless and new ways to help are always appearing - your special talents can help will help make a huge difference as the Society works to serve greater audiences each year.

Whether you are sharing a specialized skill or offering another pair of helping hands to prepare for major events and programs, the Society has a variety of short- and long-term projects as well as ongoing behind-the-scenes work in Wilmington and New Castle. Dedicated volunteers are a major reason for the success of the Society – would you be willing to contribute some of your valuable time to help keep history alive and well in the First State?
