Well, here’s your chance to learn about Dayton’s rich historical legacy while giving back to the Dayton community.
Dayton History, Montgomery County’s official historical organization, offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities for enthusiastic individuals willing to share their talents, while learning new skills.
The preservation organization operates Carillon Park, Patterson Homestead Historic House, Hawthorn Hill, the Archive Center, Kettering-Moraine Museum and Paul Laurence Dunbar State Memorial.
Dayton History needs volunteers in these positions:
- Historical Interpretation
- Archival Processing
- Office administration
- Print Shop
- Special Events
Wright State grad student Ryan Qualls, who has been volunteering with Dayton History since last October, loves the variety and flexibility of the organization.
“It’s a great learning experience,” said Qualls. “They’re so many things to do. You have a variety of duties you can choose from.”
Qualls spends his time processing collections, installing exhibits and assisting with archival preservation at the Archive Center.
