Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the THC!

Volunteers are essential to the THC. With your dedication and support we can reach many people with a desire to learn more about Texas history and its historical sites throughout the state of Texas. 

You can participate in a special event or service project as an individual or as a group or join the site Friends group. Site host volunteer opportunities are available at some sites. 

The THC agency is devoted to telling the historical facts about Texas history and events. Our mission is to protect and preserve the state‚Äôs historic and prehistoric resources for the use, education, enjoyment, and economic, and benefit or present and future generations. 

We offer a variety of opportunities for volunteers such as educators, living history actors, internships, administrators, researchers, fundraisers and many more. If you are a student, retiree, enjoy charitable work, interacting with others, improving lines of communication, being a role model, educating our future leaders and caring for your community, this is the place for you! 

Get Involved! We would be honored to have you. Please fill out an application for consideration as a State Historic Sites volunteer!
