Volunteers perform a wide variety of tasks that enable the Society to carry out its educational mission. Whether it is leading a tour, speaking to a civic group, or even stuffing envelopes, volunteers partner with the Society’s professional staff to bring the history of the Capitol and Congress to the public.

Research, Outreach, Events, and Clerical Support: The Society seeks interested volunteers who are available on-call to assist with specific research projects, outreach promotion for our educational programs, staff assistance at events, and clerical office support.
