Volunteer Opportunities

The City of Dublin provides many opportunities for volunteerism in our community. Find out where you might best be suited to volunteer:

City Events

Event/Individual Volunteers

The City of Dublin offers a variety of volunteer opportunities at its events.  Bring your family, bring some friends, bring your employer, or come out to simply give back and meet new people. This is also a great opportunity for teenagers who are looking for fun volunteering opportunities. Teens can earn volunteer credit toward school and club requirements.

A typical shift is between three and five hours on either a Saturday or Sunday. For more information on specific volunteer opportunities, please visit the Events and Festivals pages and click on each event to read about available opportunities.     

Dublin Heritage Park and Museums

Share Your Experience and Learn New Skills

Dublin Heritage Park and Museums opened in 2011, and volunteers are often needed to help provide tours to the public. The Kolb House is a 1910 Craftsman Bungalow built by one of Dublin's early founders. This historic house museum is unique because it has all of the original family furniture and belongings. Together, they tell the story of the Kolbs' journey from Bavaria and settlement in Dublin.

With the variety of volunteer needs at Heritage Park and Museums, you may choose to work with the public (children or adults), or behind the scenes, sharing your skills or learning new ones.  Many of our volunteer opportunities are for one-time special events, while others require an ongoing commitment.  The volunteer program offers the flexibility to match our needs with your schedule, skills, and interests.

Interpretive Guides

Help us to inform and educate children and adults by becoming a historical interpreter.  You will receive all of the necessary materials and training to become an integral part of the Heritage Center as it continues to expand.

As a docent, you will learn and enjoy meaningful time spent in a beautiful park setting. You will be sharing with the public Dublin's agricultural past. Training materials and coaching will be provided to fully prepare you to give great tours. You will develop new skills while making new friends and learning more about Dublin's history.
