Volunteer Opportunities

The Center welcomes those that would like to contribute their time and talents to assist in celebrating Michigan women, sharing women’s history, and supporting our operation. There are many ways you can volunteer to help:

  • Docents: Open and share the museum with visitors on the weekends.
  • Clerical: Assemble visitor materials, prepare mailings, and organizing.
  • Collection Assistants: Inventory, document, move, and store collection items.
  • Special Events: Assist with set-up, staff registration type tables, and help with break-down of events and/or count money and chips at charity poker events.
  • Internships: A limited number of unpaid internships are available for high school and college students. The student is responsible for arranging to receive credit.
