Volunteers are the life-blood of the BCHA and are an important part of our team.  Even a few hours can mean the difference when it comes to making a deadline or ensuring no one gets left behind at our many events.  You can opt to volunteer on occasion or create a regular schedule, the flexibility of the corps means that no matter if you’re in high school, working at the office, or just retired, you can still make an impact on our guests!  Some of the areas we’re seeking help include:

Collections & Archives

  • Volunteers help us by creating our corporate archives, processing existing collections, rehousing artifacts, filling research requests, etc.

Events & Programs

  • This includes working booths at events, serving as a program host, serving as a jack of all trades for large events, and more

Front Desk & Behind the Scenes

  • This can include helping with monthly mailings, organizing files, working the front desk, etc.

Interested in sponsoring an intern?  Contact us at info@berrienhistory.org to see how you can help students achieve their educational dreams!


Due to our current budget, the BCHA is only able to offer unpaid internships to interested students.  Because of this, during the school year we will only take students from institutions located in Southwest Michigan, South Bend, and Northwest Indiana during the school year.  Students who are from these areas and who attend other colleges can seek summer internships with the BCHA with the understanding that the position is unpaid.  

While the BCHA is a history museum and history majors are welcomed, we’re also a great location for other majors to expand their skills!  Museums are a multi-disciplinary field and we’re happy to pair an intern with an existing project or work to create a new one that advances our mission.

If you are interested in interning with the BCHA, feel free to look at our Internship Information Sheet here.  You can also email our director Rhiannon at rcizon@berrienhistory.org to discuss this further.



From time to time the BCHA may have a position come up for employment.  All applicants are required to submit a cover letter and resume in order to be considered for open positions.  See below for any open positions we may currently have!

We do not accept resumes for positions when no openings are available.
