Volunteering

Dedicated volunteers help the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center fulfill its mission of ensuring the lessons of the Holocaust inspire action today. To learn about our current volunteer opportunities or for questions about becoming an exhibit interpreter, please email Morgan Woodring, Tour Coordinator, at mwoodring@cincyhhc.org.

Become an Exhibit Interpreter

Our exhibit interpreters work with students and teachers of different grades, as well as diverse groups and individuals, to share the history and local narratives of the Holocaust. Interpreters also highlight contemporary moments in which individuals exemplified upstander behavior to tackle issues affecting us all. Through leading tours, facilitating exploration of the museum, and introducing speakers, interpreters play a vital role in supporting the Holocaust & Humanity Center’s mission.
