Volunteers Help Bring History Alive at Sauder Village

For long-time volunteers Jack and Vivian Taylor, time spent at Sauder Village means much more than just giving train rides or selling souvenirs in the Gift Shop. For this special couple, the time they spend together at Sauder Village is an opportunity to meet people from around the world, spend time with special co-workers, and help keep Erie Sauder’s dream alive.

“We just love it at Sauder Village,” Jack and Vivian shared. “The people are wonderful and it is great to be a part of what’s happening at Sauder Village!”

The Taylors are just one example of the hundreds of volunteers who share their time and talents each year at Sauder Village. In 2009, 340 people gave 14,422 hours of their time at Sauder Village.

While the jobs may vary, the volunteer profile remains the same . . . friendly, outgoing individuals, who enjoy working with people! There are opportunities to provide administrative support, help with collections or educational programming, work in the historic gardens or help in the Gift Shop. Volunteers also work as historic interpreters, help with historic trades, and help in the Quilt Shop.

It takes the support of many people to continue the legacy Erie started so many years ago. Volunteers play an integral role at our non-profit organization and we are thankful that so many people throughout the tri-state area share their time and talents at Sauder Village.

Interested in getting involved? Stop by the Sauder Village Welcome Center or give us a call for an application (800.590.9755). We’ll do our best to work with you and your interests to find the best volunteer opportunity for you at Sauder Village!
