Become an Arch Street Meeting House Volunteer!
Program enrollment is available year-round.

Arch Street Meeting House is seeking new Volunteers to join our team of dedicated Volunteers and staff! Our Volunteers are vital to our day-to-day operations and facilitate guests’ movement through the main floor of the building. As our Volunteers guide visitors through the meetinghouse, they answer questions and provide relevant information that supplements the exhibits & history of the space. Traditional Volunteer shifts are 3 hours long, although Volunteers are additionally asked to donate their time during large events and occasional smaller programming. ASMH staff facilitate annual training and supply relevant materials for study in advance. 

ASMH is open to the public from early March until just before the Christmas holiday. Operating days are Thursdays through Sundays, expanding to include Wednesdays & holidays in the summer months. Volunteers are expected to commit to at least two shifts a month; one on a weekday & one on a weekend. Being a Quaker is not a requirement, but enthusiasm is a must!  


By donating your time as an Active Volunteer, you receive: 

  • Unlimited use of the parking lot adjoining ASMH 

  • Monthly informal seminars developed by the Volunteers 

  • One yearly outing facilitated by ASMH staff 

  • Opportunities for expanding your skills and responsibilities at ASMH 

  • Complimentary admission to ASMH events 


For more information about our volunteer program, please contact Jennifer Gray, our Visitor Services & Rentals Coordinator, at

If you have any questions about our programs and events, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
