Volunteers play an important role in the life of the Society of the Cincinnati and Anderson House. From leading tours of Anderson House to researching rare materials in the library, the 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 lead guided tours of Anderson House during its regular museum hours, although volunteers are often called upon to assist with group tours and public programs scheduled outside regular museum hours. Volunteers may also take on a variety of other projects, depending on their interests and the needs of the museum and library. No previous experience is required, but most volunteers have an interest in history, fine and decorative arts, or architecture. Fluency in a foreign language is a valued asset in a tour guide, but not necessary in order to volunteer. Volunteers must be at least eighteen years of age.
Museum internships and library fellowships are also available for qualified applicants. Please see our Scholarship section for more information.
