Youth Volunteer Programs

Youth Ambassadors

The Youth Ambassador program is a unique "education through service" program designed to attract a dynamic service-oriented group of young people who have an interest not only in helping the Atlanta History Center but in improving their community. Youth Ambassadors will gain experience in historic houses, administration, guest services, curation, public history programs, and much more. The program is open to 9th to 12th grade students (age 15 - 19). Students will need to commit to one school year of service from August to May and to a minimum of 75 volunteer hours. There is a program fee of $35.  If you are interested or know a student who might be interested, please email Robin Fink, Manager of Volunteer Services, at rfink@atlantahistorycenter.com.

 

Junior Interpreters

Atlanta students have never had a better opportunity to be involved in our city’s dynamic history than with the Atlanta History Center’s Junior Interpreter Program. This program allows students in 6th through 12th grade to volunteer as first person interpreters in period costume at the Smith Family Farm and the Swan House.  To learn more about this fun program, check out our FAQ sheet.  If you have questions, need additional information or to request an application, please contact rfink@atlantahistorycenter.com.
