The Dearborn Historical Museum has many events throughout the year. We try to offer a wide variety of interesting programming to the public. To make each event the best it can possibly be, we need you. Below you will find information on our pioneer school program opportunities as well as other season events. This page will be updated throughout the year with additional opportunities.
The Dearborn Historical Museum is looking for volunteers to help with our annual Pioneer Program! Each spring the museum welcomes nearly 1,500 second grade students from Dearborn Public Schools, and other local schools, to participate in this field-trip opportunity. The Pioneer Program helps to show students what life was like in Dearborn for settlers during the 1830s. This rewarding program allows for multiple volunteer opportunities based on individual interest, including historical presenting, program curriculum planning, costume making, event planning, and more! It provides a wonderful chance to connect with local youth while sharing Dearborn’s history with the next generation. We are looking for volunteers from all backgrounds to help make this program successful!
