Volunteering is a great way to get involved at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee. Volunteers at the Museum help us to carry out our mission while enjoying opportunities for growth and community service.

Jewish Museum Milwaukee relies heavily on its many volunteers. Our regular volunteers serve as docents (guides), archival assistants, researchers, and workshop leaders. Volunteers also help to staff the Museum for special events.

Docents connect with thousands of Museum visitors leading tours through the permanent and changing collections.  To learn more about the docent program at JMM, contact Ellie Gettinger.

Archives volunteers assist with collections, cataloging, scanning and researching. To learn more about volunteering in JMM’s archive, contact Jay Hyland.

Internships are available to assist with a variety of Museum functions. The Museum enlists university-level and higher interns to assist with exhibit research, events, outreach, archives, and education programs.  If you are interested in an internship, please send a one-page resume and statement about why you would like to intern at JMM to Ellie Gettinger
