Adult Volunteers

Take your passion to the next level

Our adult volunteers are key to Conner Prairie’s overall guest experience. They serve as ambassadors throughout the year. Through the efforts of our dedicated and passionate volunteers, guests are able to Step Into the Story of Indiana’s past, present, and future at our unique museum where history, art, science, and nature come to life.

Conner Prairie has a wide range of volunteering opportunities working directly with guests or behind the scenes. There are more than 90 different ways to connect your passion and skills to our mission. We truly have something for everyone. Come share your talents, learn some new ones, make friends, and have fun as you Step Into your own Story as an adult volunteer at Conner Prairie.
