Sumner Hall with its programs, exhibitions and initiatives is a testimony to the power of volunteers. Since re-opening to the public in 2014, volunteers are at the center of everything we envision and undertake. Our 15 – member Board of Directions functions as the Executive Leadership of Sumner Hall, contributing the equivalent of 1.5 full time staff paid staff positions. In addition, our major initiatives – Legacy Day, James Taylor Justice Coalition and our Children’s Education Program – are all volunteer-led, managed and produced.

Volunteer roles at Sumner Hall are only limited by our imagination. We welcome new volunteers who are interested in supporting current programs, exhibits and initiatives and we always welcome new ideas!

Please contact us if you are interested in volunteer opportunities at Sumner Hall. We welcome your creative energy and proposals for additional programs and exhibitions.
