The Delaware Public Archives has many exciting opportunities for volunteers and interns to learn and preserve Delaware’s rich history. From arrangement to description and digitization, our team works hard to make our collections more accessible to patrons.
Our volunteers and interns generously donate their time to organize, catalog, and preserve fascinating pieces of the past. If you’re interested in joining them, apply today!

“Volunteering at the Delaware Public Archives has been very exciting and gratifying. Being able to digitize and process old and fragile photos and documents related to Delaware’s forests, forest industry, and forest landowners is both an honor and a privilege. The staff at Delaware Public Archives are very professional and are always very thoughtful and helpful to me as a volunteer.”Bob Tjaden, Volunteer 2022-present
