Be a BVH Volunteer

Young or old, with kids or without, lots of time or a little time, anywhere you are in your life -- we know that you can help us preserve and share the history of this area. You have gifts and desire, and we have needs, lots of needs.

We need people who love to be with people. We need people who'd prefer not to be in front of people. We need people who love history. We need people who love that we're all about families. We need people who want to help us with front-line operations -- like being a docent or participating in our re-enactment events. We need people who want to help us with higher level operations, like strategic planning or operational organization.

Contact us to let us know you're interested in being a volunteer.

If you have an idea of how you'd like to help and don't see it listed below, contact us anyway. We have five properties, a huge collection, multiple events and big plans -- there's no end to the fun and important ways you could be a part of what BV Heritage does.
