While HHT periodically engages volunteer assistance with unique opportunities such as our annual gala, our primary volunteer program is the Roof Raisers Curatorial Brigade. 

The specially-trained volunteers of the Roof Raisers Curatorial Brigade offer their time and talents assisting historic sites with critical collections care. This volunteer opportunity is perfect for history buffs, students, and professionals looking to gain hands-on experience in historic preservation and collections management.

HHT also offers internships in our development, communications, and capital project departments. To browse current internship opportunities, please click here.
