Volunteer Opportunities

The Clara Barton Birthplace Museum offers the opportunity for you to become involved in our dynamic volunteer program. Volunteers learn more as they assist with tours, educational programs, research, historic gardening, and property caretaking. The Clara Barton Birthplace Museum, dedicated to preserving the inspirational stories of the great humanitarian, invites those moved by her life’s work to become involved in activities at the small historic house museum. We welcome contributions from volunteers of all ages and skills, in the New England area and beyond, thanks to the internet.
