Volunteers are an essential part of the day-to-day operations of the San Francisco Historical Society.

A list of current volunteer opportunities can be found below. We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers who want to put their skills, talents, and experience to work for San Francisco history. Contact Lana Costantini (415) 537-1105 ext 2 for more information.

Join a Committee

We invite you to contribute your time and talent by joining a SFHS  Committee. Committees are made up of active, engaged board members, SFHS members, consultants, and volunteers from the community.  Committees include Education, Publications, Programs, Marketing, and Development.

Event Crew Members

Event crew members make SFHS events possible. Responsibilities include assisting with event set-up, visitor registration or check-in, food and wine service, and clean-up after events. Volunteers assist with a wide variety of tasks and might have to be on their feet for several hours. Training will generally take place on the job or immediately before the event.

Hours will vary. Typically it will take place weekday evenings or weekend days or evenings. Locations will vary. Minimum commitment is one event. Repeat volunteers are encouraged and welcomed.

This job is perfect for volunteers with busy schedules who want to contribute to SFHS on weekday evenings or weekends.

Volunteer at the SFHS Museum

Our museum at 608 Commercial Street is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. When we open again, we’ll need volunteers to greet visitors and show them around the museum and its exhibits. If you love historic sites and like meeting people, this volunteer opportunity may be for you.
