Office Assistant Volunteers help with the daily running of our organization. Tasks might include filing, collating binders, entering data into spreadsheets, or other administrative tasks.
Hike assistants works with the hike leader to provide support during the hike of a group of participants on coal mining and logging hikes around Issaquah. Responsibilities include taking pictures, distributing evaluations, making sure that hike participants are staying with the group.
Facilities Volunteers help maintain the museum grounds and facilities in a safe and attractive manner.
Collections Volunteers work with the Collections Manager to research, catalog, and care for IHM’s ever growing holdings of artifacts and photographs. Some Collections Volunteers work on specific long-term projects; other help with whatever is most needed during the time when they are in the building.
Issaquah History Museums’ tour program provides additional interpretation of exhibits at the Gilman Town Hall and Issaquah Depot. You’ll learn inquiry-based techniques to use with kids, along with deeper information about the exhibit contents in order to create a positive learning experience for visiting groups.
The Issaquah History Museums are seeking docents to assist with the upcoming busy season! Docents at the Issaquah Depot Museum and the Gilman Town Hall Museums act as hosts and representatives of the museums, and provide a personal connection to the museum experience. Docents welcome visitors, answer basic questions, sell trolley tickets and gift shop items, and open and secure the building.
