Volunteering or interning can be a great way to involve yourself in the community, learn something new, meet other people with similar interests, or determine if a career in the museum field is right for you.

Volunteers help make things happen and there are plenty of tasks for every interest and schedule. Review our Volunteer Opportunities section below, and then contact our Education Department at (510) 581-0223 or education@haywardareahistory.org.
