Volunteering and Internships in Special Collections

If you have a passion for local history and excellent organizational skills, the Galveston and Texas History Center is the place for you! Volunteers enjoy a flexible schedule, friendly work environment, and never-ending learning opportunities among the History Center’s treasures.

Volunteers and interns help with:

  • Processing and organizing archival collections (inventorying and describing items, labeling, and data entry)
  • Digitizing photographs and documents
  • Creating topical online exhibits
  • Planning, hosting, or assisting with local history programs and events
  • Teaching classes on topics of your expertise (e.g. genealogy, house history research, your own historical research)
  • Community outreach
