Volunteer With Us


As a small non-profit organization, the Great American Songbook Foundation would not function without the assistance of a small, but dedicated group of volunteers.  Our volunteers must commit to working at least one three-hour shift each week. Training is provided. Volunteer opportunities exist in two areas:


Docents are the public face of the organization. A docent must be comfortable talking to large groups, enjoy working with the public and be flexible. They enjoy and share the music of the Songbook ― timeless American music from the early 20th century to the present. Our docents welcome and educate visitors on current Songbook Gallery exhibits and programs, and provide administrative support to staff.

Archives Processors: 
Archives Processors assist the Archivist by inventorying collections, pulling artifacts for exhibits, cataloging library materials, and helping with special projects such as digitization. A volunteer in this area must enjoy attention to detail and be proficient in Microsoft Office products. They must also have a desire to learn new technologies.
