The Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire works to visibly honor and celebrate a truer more inclusive state’s history through exhibits, programs and tours that can change the way our country understands human dignity when it is free of historical stereotypes. We invite individuals, foundations, corporations, and other organizations to discover how you can be part of this historic endeavor in exploration, interpreting and sharing of New Hampshire’s African-American history.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for The Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire. We have divided our volunteer positions into three categories:
- Specialist Team
You’re a specialist who wants to contribute a specific skill or area of expertise to our volunteer team. You’ll work behind the scenes with staff members on projects involving marketing, grants research, website development, digitization, writing, historical research, photography or other skills-based activities.
- People Team
You’re the face of BHTNH! You enjoy interacting with people and have great customer service skills. You may use your people talents as an event greeter, survey assistant, trail guide and other activities focused on serving our visitors.
- Project Team
You want to help where you are most needed. You’ll play a core service role on one-time or short-term projects, such as events, office work, data or evaluation entry, digitization, and mailings.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for a wide range of programs and exhibitions, and are customized to meet a potential sponsor’s timing and budget. We offer five major programs per year: Elinor William Hooker Tea Talks, The Spring Symposium, Guided Tours, Juneteenth Celebration and the Black New England Conference.
