More Details

 The Dallas Jewish Historical Society works to collect and preserve the papers, photographs, and artifacts that illustrate the history of the Jewish community in Dallas.  We strive to keep the past alive through innovative programming, community outreach, and by making our collections accessible to our patrons and researchers.  Our archive includes textual documents, maps, photographs, slides, artwork, objects, textiles, and an extensive oral history collection in various formats from vinyl to digital.  Programs include the Lecture Series, the Oral History Program, Historic Bus Tours, and Photo Socials.  


Our community engagement efforts and daily tasks result in a surplus of projects that include everything from filing to data entry, to research, to occasional editing and revision of outgoing communications. As an administrative volunteer, this position will directly report to the DJHS Administrative Assistant, but will occasionally also assist the Executive Director and Archivist with various clerical tasks. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the Dallas Jewish community, while earning clerical experience in a nonprofit setting!


We require a commitment for a minimum 3 months, with no less than 4 hours per week.  Volunteer hours must be served in increments of no less than 2 hours.  Each volunteer opportunity and internship is unique and based on the experience, education, and interests of each applicant.  Please contact our Volunteer Director and Archivist, Jessica Schneider, to find out more about the application and interview process.
