Volunteer Today

The Gresham Historical Society relies on dedicated volunteers for most of our daily operations. Are you interested in joining the team? Here’s what we’re needing:

Docents greet visitors during our open hours and sometimes work on small tasks out in the main room. These volunteers will familiarize themselves with the current exhibits and some basic facts about the museum and Gresham history, but no special qualifications are necessary. We encourage anyone with a positive attitude and enthusiasm for history to apply. Two to six hours per month can make a huge difference! 

Research Room volunteers work with the museum collections. We need volunteers to help catalog photos, documents and other artifacts. Research room volunteers should know their way around a computer and have a good eye for detail.
If you are interested in helping out, please email info@greshamhistorical.org or call us at (503)661-0347.
