Volunteer Opportunities Available at George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum

Interested in American history, the Presidency, and important issues of public policy? The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum offers many exciting volunteer opportunities specifically tailored for you.

Volunteers spend their time talking with visitors from around the world about the presidency of George W. Bush. They explain the artifacts and documents which were received or generated during the eight years of his Administration. Volunteers receive extensive training and mentoring as well as the opportunity to participate in fun and exciting annual activities which assist in the achievement of personal and professional goals.

Due to the sensitive nature of Presidential materials, all volunteers must be at least 16 years of age, a U.S. Citizen or holder of a permanent resident card/A1 Diplomatic Visa, successfully pass a background check, and sign a confidentiality agreement. Individuals are asked to make a one-year commitment, work up to 4.5 hours per week on a non-paid basis, and learn new skills. For some positions, proficiency in Microsoft Suite programs or the physical ability to lift up to 50 pounds, stand for long periods of time, and climb ladders is required.

Located on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, the Bush Center was dedicated on April 25, 2013 with five living Presidents in attendance. The complex, which features a 15-acre park complete with native Texas wildflowers, plants, and an amphitheater, is home to the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, the 13th presidential library operated by the National Archives and Records Administration; the George W. Bush Institute, the non-partisan, public-policy arm of the Bush Center; Café 43, a full-service restaurant; and a museum store.
