Volunteer


We need help! There are lots of ways you can get involved to support our programs:

  • At Home. Will you transcribe oral history interviews? Create indexes and finding aids? Work on our website? Help identify photographs?
  • Oral Histories. Are you willing to meet community members and record their stories?  We can get you trained and introduced to people whose eye-witness accounts can become part of our collections.
  • Walking Tours. Would you like to learn to give a guided tour? Research and develop a new one?
  • Archiving Materials. Do you want to help review donated items?  Organize and describe them for researchers?  Prepare them for transfer and storage?
  • Public Programs.  Would you like to help plan public events? Work on logistics for fundraisers, panel discussions, or exhibits?

Other thoughts?  What would you like to do? Do you have a skill or a passion you’d be willing to dedicate to the community?  If so, please get in touch via email (info@rainbowhistory.org) or phone 202-670-7470.
