Giving back is a win-win-win

Gain energy and give energy by putting your talents to work for community benefit.

Research has shown that volunteering creates a win-win-win! You gain energy, connections, and a sense of satisfaction from using your strengths to help others. Mennonite Life gains a boost from your partnership in our mission. And ultimately communities benefit – locally and beyond – from access to the histories, cultures, and stories of Mennonite life.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Host museum visitors and groups on one or both of our campuses
  • Assist customers in our research library and archives
  • Process accessions to our collections
  • Digitize documents and photographs for online accessibility
  • Sort donated used books for our annual Bookworm Frolic
  • Hands-on property maintenance tasks
  • Serve as a tour guide at the 1719 Museum (April-October)
