JANM presently is closed to the public but we are accepting application for our January 2021 new volunteer class.

We need weekday school tour facilitators!

Facilitating interactive school group experiences of our core exhibition “Common Ground: The Heart of Community”.
Crafting with students to create one of the Museum’s four designated origami pieces
No museum or docent experience needed. Knowledge provided in both classroom settings and through active learning. Familiarity with Japanese American history is a plus but not required.

Volunteers needed for morning hour shifts of 4 hours on Fridays and Tuesdays. Average of eight volunteer hours per month requested.

Benefits? Yes! You’ll have the opportunity to hear many unique and distinct stories of lives that together form the American experience. And nonstop learning opportunities offered through volunteer and staff led sessions, JANM public programs, and on-line resources.
