New! The museum is looking for a Lead Volunteer. Click here for more information.

 


At the Noah Webster House, we see over 6,000 general visitors each year (on top of our 10,000 school kids and numerous public program attendees).  All of these visitors want something different from us, but they all want one thing: TO HAVE FUN LEARNING SOMETHING NEW.

You can help make learning fun by becoming a museum volunteer! Members of our dedicated volunteer corps greet and assist museum guests, lead tours of the Noah Webster House, and help out at special events like Tavern Nights and Gingerbread Day. 

If you're looking to add to your resume,want to meet new people, need service hours, or just want to have fun learning something new, check out the available positions below.

Our volunteers are from all over Greater Hartford and come from a variety of backgrounds. Anyone age 15 and over can apply.
