The New Bedford Preservation Society has opportunities for those interested in becoming volunteer tour guides. Volunteers in this category are utilized at various society events; such as the Historic Holiday Tour, cemetery tours; and summer neighborhood walking tours. The Preservation Society also has opportunities for office volunteers.

  • House Tour guide volunteers will receive “house-specific” training immediately prior to the house tour events. Cemetery tour guides will also receive training prior to the event.
  • Office volunteers assist with historical research, grant preparation, bulk-mailing projects, data entry, photocopying, filing, and fund-raising activities. Experience with the use of office machines, computers, data entry, graphics, telephone skills and public relations are valuable in this volunteer category.

Please contact the society office by phone (508.997.6425) or by email: nbps2000@yahoo.com for more information. Indicate your volunteer preference, address information, telephone number and email address, and we will get back to you to discuss your volunteer options.

We thank you for your interest.
