Volunteers play a vital role and help us to carry out JMM’s mission and vision while enjoying opportunities for growth and community service.

Volunteering is a great way to get involved at Jewish Museum Milwaukee. Our regular volunteers serve as docents (tour guides), archival assistants, researchers, and workshop leaders. Volunteers also help to staff the Museum for special events.

To learn more about becoming a volunteer, please fill out the Internship & Volunteer Form. Once the form is received, Museum staff will contact you to discuss further.

Be A Docent

A docent is an invaluable part of the success of Jewish Museum Milwaukee.

Docents are the educational cornerstone of school and adult group tours. As a conduit, the docent is uniquely placed to be the most high-impact person on-site, giving voice to what may otherwise go unsaid.

Volunteer in the Archives

Jewish Museum Milwaukee’s archive is a witness to Wisconsin’s Jewish past, present and future. It holds the memory of those who have come before and tells the story of the impact of Jews on the city, state and beyond.

The artifacts, documents, photographs, and oral history interviews are valuable to researchers, scholars, genealogists, students, journalists, and anyone who wants to learn about Wisconsin’s past.

Archive volunteers get hands-on experience with collections and assist with cataloging, digitizing, researching, transcribing, and so much more!
