As a Volunteer, you will make rich connections with Green-Wood’s history and become a part of the unique and exciting work happening here. You will gain extensive knowledge about the historic, artistic, and natural significance of Green-Wood.
There are currently three types of volunteer opportunities—but you don’t have to choose just one! We gladly welcome people who have interest in multiple areas.
Welcome Cart — The Welcome Cart is the first stop for people visiting the Cemetery. You will assist with wayfinding, answer questions, and share your passion for Green-Wood with everyone who stops by! Maps, books, and select merchandise are available for sale. For this post, we ask that you commit to a weekly 3 to 4 hour shift (length depends on the season). The Cart is open approximately April through October.
Events — Green-Wood hosts hundreds of events each year, including tours, lectures, concerts, screenings, and more. Events volunteers assist with check in, hand out event materials, and lend a hand with other tasks. Volunteers are scheduled seasonally when the events calendar has been finalized, and on an as-needed basis.
Archives and Historical Collections — Volunteers assist with the arrangement, description, and preservation of our archival holdings and participate in important research projects. You will work alongside Green-Wood’s Archivist, Manager of Collections, and Historian. Click here to learn more about or apply to volunteer with this team.
