Volunteer Opportunities

The City of Dublin provides many opportunities for volunteerism in our community. Find out where you might best be suited to volunteer:

Dublin Heritage Park & Museums


Share Your Experience & Learn New Skills

Dublin Heritage Park & Museums opened in 2011, and volunteers are often needed to help provide tours to the public. The Kolb House is a 1910 Craftsman Bungalow built by one of Dublin's early founders. This historic house museum is unique because it has all of the original family furniture and belongings. Together, they tell the story of the Kolbs' journey from Bavaria and settlement in Dublin.

As a docent, you will learn and enjoy meaningful time spent in a beautiful park setting. You will be sharing with the public Dublin's agricultural past. Training materials and coaching will be provided to fully prepare you to give great tours. You will develop new skills while making new friends and learning more about Dublin's history. Volunteers are asked to give three hours a week.

With the variety of volunteer needs at Heritage Park and Museums, you may choose to work with the public (children or adults), or behind the scenes, sharing your skills or learning new ones. Many of our volunteer opportunities are for one-time special events, while others require an ongoing commitment. The volunteer program offers the flexibility to match our needs with your schedule, skills, and interest.
