If you have an interest in architecture, art, or history and want to share that interest with others, volunteering at the Johns Hopkins University Museums might be the perfect fit. When you volunteer as a docent or intern at Homewood or Evergreen, you join a fascinating community of art and architecture lovers, history scholars, educators, and museum supporters.
Homewood Museum and Evergreen Museum & Library seek volunteers who are interested in the museums and their collections to give tours and help with educational programs. Docents are needed on weekends and/or weekdays, and schedules can be created to suit your needs and availability.
JHU Museum docents join the intellectual life of The Johns Hopkins University, are offered opportunities for additional training, and are invited to attend social events, openings, lectures, and tours of other historic sites.
The JHU Museums offer internships for fall and spring semesters, summer, and short-term intensive internships during January. Homewood and Evergreen staff welcome applicants from area colleges and universities and will work with department faculty to create an appropriate course of study to suit the student’s interests as well as meet the museum's needs. Academic credit for internships must be pre-arranged through the student’s institution. Opportunities include: curatorial projects focusing on specific aspects of the museum’s collections, registration projects, education and interpretation, collections research, care and management, exhibitions, and architectural research.
