So not surprisingly, the Dallas Historical Society welcomes volunteers to assist with our various programs and events. There are a variety of opportunities available.




We have a great opportunity for volunteers to work in the archives! We need help with data entry, organization and general maintenance in the archives. No experience necessary!

For more information about working in the archives, please email volunteer@dallashistory.org.

Docents are needed to lead school groups and specialized interest groups. Docent training requires ongoing training in order to keep abreast of the ever-changing events and exhibits, as well as Texas Educational requirements.

State Fair Volunteers

Every year the Dallas Historical Society needs volunteers to help us during the State Fair of Texas! Join our crew of volunteers who help us answer questions regarding the current exhibits, assist visitors with directions and various other duties as assigned. A special State Fair volunteer orientation is held each year during the month of September.
