Thank you so much for your inquiry about volunteering at the DuSable Museum. Here at the DuSable
Museum of African American History, we have a lot of exciting events and volunteer opportunities in the
months ahead and we could use your help to make them a success. Only with the help of volunteers like you,
can we continue to operate the only institution in Chicago that is dedicated to preserving the history and
culture of Americans of African descent. As a volunteer your contribution is priceless.

Volunteers are essential to the DuSable Museum and are needed in many different departments. In
Education, volunteers assist visitors for various programs, workshops and serve as tour guides for groups. In
the Development volunteers are needed to staff membership tables at on-site and off-site events. In the theater,
volunteers serve as ushers and coat checkers at events, in concessions and at information tables. These are
just a few of many volunteer opportunities to choose from.

Come out and enjoy our terrific programs and help support our ongoing mission here at the DuSable Museum.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
