Volunteer opportunities

The Oxford County Archives provides high school students with an excellent opportunity to complete their mandatory volunteer hours. Volunteer positions at the archives are ideal for students who are interested in gaining experience in an office/administrative setting and have an interest in history, education or research.

Examples of volunteer work includes arranging and describing archival collections, conducting historical research, transcribing historical journals, ledgers, and letters, translating letters from French to English (for bilingual students), helping with outreach programs, creating children's activity pages and crafts, and conservation work.
