Volunteers: THE HISTORY CENTER needs you!

Volunteers are the cornerstone of the Lake County History Center.  To let our programs expand, more hands are needed.

Wonder how you might help? No worries. Our needs are many & varied. Whether you are a behind the scenes type of person or one who likes to be involved with the public, our staff will be glad to find the perfect niche for you by utilizing YOUR unique interests, skills & schedule, offering you a fun & comfortable experience.

Volunteers help with varied events, act as History Center docents (tour guides), work with children in our school programs, help with grant writing, do light clerical work and help with site maintenance.

So!  We’d love for you to join our family & fun. Call 440-639-2834 or email CLentz@LakeHistory.org
