Volunteer and Internship Opportunities

The Historical Society of Haddonfield relies on the generosity and enthusiasm of our volunteers to help us preserve, study, and promote Haddonfield’s rich history. We could use extra hands in many areas, from office work and event-planning to maintaining the buildings and grounds and leading tours for educational programs.

Most of our volunteers help during typical business hours when the Society is open to the public, but we also have occasional opportunities for weekend or evening volunteers. Some volunteers help for a couple hours every week, and others help once or twice a year for special events or projects.

Our most urgent volunteer needs currently include:

  • Adults for the Oct. 30, 2017 Haunted Mansion event (for set-up, food, monitoring activities, and cleanup);
  • Monitors for our temporary exhibit about World War I running Nov. 5 – Dec. 8, 2017;
  • Writers/editors for our newsletter published four times per year;
  • Someone to lay out our newsletter in MS Publisher four times per year;
  • People to help with occasional data entry, including updating membership records or collection records, or posting our events in online calendars;
  • Gardeners for seasonal outside work; and more.

If you’re interested in learning more, please fill out the form below so that we can match you with a specific project.


We welcome inquiries from potential student interns, but if you’re looking for a summer internship, please keep in mind that the Society is closed for the entire month of August. Internships are unpaid and require supervision at all times. To set up a summer internship, please contact the Historical Society no later than May 15.
