Get Involved
The Cherokee National Historical Society, Inc was founded 1963 and has since grown to become a national model for Native specific museums. The museum is dedicated to preserving, promoting and teaching Cherokee history and culture.

Get behind-the-scenes access to the Cherokee Heritage Center and share your love and enthusiasm for Cherokee culture with others. Volunteer at the museum and you can become part of our mission to connect people through art.

As a volunteer, you’ll explore new areas of interest, meet stimulating people, get involved with a cultural community, attend social and educational events, and learn marketable skills.

Volunteer hours are available on both a regular and on-call basis during weekdays and weekends. Most opportunities are during the day, but some evening hours are also available.

Internships develop a sense for working in a non-profit office environment. They have an opportunity to learn in-depth about the exhibitions on view at the museum through research projects and staff training sessions. They gain confidence in making some professional contacts within the organization and the community. They observe and participate in the inner-workings associated with museums and cultural centers. They strengthen organizational, time-management, and problem-solving skills. Interns can plan projects focused on our museum, archives, genealogy, development and more.

This is an unpaid position for college students, though may be tailored to meet requirements for class credit.

Ongoing positions with hours between 8 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday, and some weekends/special events.
