The Greenbelt Museum is a partnership between the City of Greenbelt of Maryland and the nonprofit 501(c)(3) Friends of the Greenbelt Museum. Volunteers play a vital role at the Museum, the organization could not function without them.  The historic house is largely staffed by volunteers each Sunday whose collective knowledge about Greenbelt's history is immense. Volunteers also guide walking tours, help with children's activities, assist with special events, and perform administrative work.  From the FOGM Board of Directors, to those who only wish to help occasionally, we truly value our volunteers. Interested in volunteering? Fill out our volunteer form and we'll get back to you. Have questions? Send an email to education@greenbeltmuseum.org


When you volunteer as a docent on Sunday afternoons, your hours are recorded. However, many of our volunteers are taking on special projects that they complete at home or at other locations. 


If you are volunteering for the Greenbelt Museum, make sure to let us know! Please record your hours here.

We regret to announce that the DOROTHY SUCHER MEMORIAL INTERNSHIP has been suspended. Please contact us about other opportunities. 

The Dorothy Sucher Memorial Internship is awarded annually to an outstanding college-level or graduate student interested in supporting the work of the Greenbelt Museum. The internship was established in 2012 by Dr. Joseph Sucher to commemorate the life and work of his late wife, Dorothy Sucher, who initiated the founding of the Greenbelt Museum with a letter to the editor of the Greenbelt News Review in 1972. The Dorothy Sucher Memorial Intern will assist the Museum Director and the Education/Volunteer Coordinator with the planning and execution of educational programs, collections care and cataloging, maintenance of the historic house, performing historical research, and administrative tasks such as responding to inquiries, maintaining membership records, and other duties as assigned. While clerical work is part of the position, there will be opportunities for creative thinking and substantive contributions to the work of the Museum. To learn more see the internship page
