Volunteer for History Days

 

San Francisco History Days is an annual event organized by a collective of Bay Area historical organizations. Its aim is to celebrate and share the history of the San Francisco Bay Area. This year’s event will be held at The Old San Francisco Mint (88 5th St.) and will feature dozens of exhibits and presentations from community historians, archivists, genealogists, archaeologists, authors, researchers and educators, including an exhibit by Alameda Museum. 

The event is free and open to the public and has been set for  Saturday, March 3, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 4, from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Volunteers are needed for both weekend days to fulfill a variety of roles, including staffing the Alameda Museum’s table. Other volunteers are needed to provide support for presentations, greet visitors or volunteers at the doors, support authors in their designated exhibition room and offer general assistance.

More specific descriptions of duties and time commitments for all of these roles are available for anyone who is interested, in addition to a shift schedule. For most positions, two shifts have been set for both Saturday and Sunday.
