Join the Volunteer Team at Stanley-Whitman House!

Stanley-Whitman House has a long tradition of support from volunteers and members. There are currently sixty volunteers working in nearly every function of the museum, from greeting visitors at the Welcome Desk to working with the museum’s collection. High school and college students are welcomed as interns. Internships can be arranged to satisfy the requirements of an established school program or can be developed for individual interests. Help bring the magic of early New England history to visitors by volunteering at Stanley-Whitman House!
