Join the Westcott Volunteer Team! This professionally-designed volunteer training program will connect you with your community in new and amazing ways! Our program combines tours, lectures, and hands-on learning. You will learn incredible stories about the Westcott House and this region, and then have the opportunity to share your knowledge with others through your role as a docent, guide, museum store volunteer, researcher, and community builder.

A commitment of 4 hours or more on a monthly basis is the most beneficial way to volunteer at the Westcott House. A regular schedule provides an opportunity to become truly fluent in interpreting the site to the public and effectively engage with the visitors and staff. Our volunteers' schedules vary from 4 hours a month to 5 hours a week, so you will be able to make a commitment that best fits your schedule.

Our volunteers come from as far as Cincinnati or Columbus, so we often welcome a volunteer class that is truly regional! No prior experience in the areas of architecture, design and history is required.

Our training sessions will take place via Zoom, and in person at the Westcott House and a lecture hall at the Clark County Public Library. A detailed itinerary will be shared with the participants in advance.
