Volunteer Opportunities

We always welcome volunteers to the Yankton County Historical Society and Mead Cultural Education Center.

Our volunteers have become the backbone of what we are able to accomplish. Many of our core volunteers have been with us since we started the process of preparing for the move to the Mead Cultural Education Center in 2012. Some have been with Crystal since she came on in 2008. And some volunteers help for special events and happenings.

Our volunteers are family to all of us with the Yankton County Historical Society. We invite you to become part of that family. 

We need help with collections care, programming, tours, gift shop, and front desk. Training is available in all areas. 

Contact us at programs@meadbuilding.org for more information.
