What is the value of volunteering?
- Volunteers are ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
- Volunteering is about giving, contributing, and helping other individuals and the community at large. It is working with others to contribute to a better community.
- Volunteers create a vibrant civil society, dynamic, engaged, and self reliant.
- Volunteering is giving, not taking, contributing, not counting.
Volunteers are the life blood of the North Olympic History Center. Members of the Board of Directors, also volunteers, are charged with raising funds to operate the day-to-day affairs of the Society's museum and research library, while volunteer staff carry out the tasks that keep the whole organization running smoothly under the guidance of the Executive Director.
By joining our team, you become part of a unique group of dedicated individuals who can be found in the Archives Storage Facility and in the Research Library, lending their special talents where needed to preserve and share North Olympic Peninsula history with the community.
