Volunteer Information

The Detroit Historical Society accepts volunteer applications during two open enrollment periods each calendar year. The open enrollment periods are:

  • August 1st - October 31st
  • March 1st - May 31st


Due to the overwhelming applicant response during our Spring 2017 open enrollment, the Detroit Historical Society will not be accepting volunteer applications for permanent volunteer roles from August 1, 2017 - October 31, 2017  We will resume open enrollment in March 2018.


Please note that Docent applications are accepted year-round and can be found on our Docent Information page. 

If you are looking for a short-term volunteer opportunity for community service or extra-credit, we may be able to accommodate you. Please download our Temporary Volunteer Information Sheet to learn more.
