Why Volunteer With TCHA?
The Tippecanoe County Historical Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of Tippecanoe County residents and visitors by collecting, preserving and interpreting our unique and exciting history. To make that mission a reality, we need the help of individuals who share our passion for history and education and want to help preserve and share local history with others.
Volunteering with TCHA is a wonderful opportunity to share our community’s history with children, families and visitors from all over the world. Visitors appreciate the stories of the real people who founded and built Tippecanoe County and willingly show their appreciation. Being a volunteer also allows you a chance to learn more about the people and places of our vibrant community.
A Unique Volunteer Experience.
TCHA offers several volunteer positions, so you are sure to find a place that meets your interests and abilities. Prospective volunteers must fill out an application and attend an interview. Each volunteer position requires on-site training, but no previous experience is required. Volunteers should have good communication skills, a willingness to learn, and feel comfortable talking to groups and children. All volunteer positions require training/ orientation sessions before service begins.
All TCHA library resources are available to volunteers when arrangements are made with TCHA personnel. Each volunteer will receive a volunteer packet that includes background information for their area of service and policies of the Tippecanoe County Historical Association.
