Volunteers contribute more than 5,000 hours to the Issaquah History Museums annually. They make it possible for us to maintain museum open hours, provide guided tours and kids’ programming, and care for our facilities. We’re looking for an energetic team member who can work closely with, and increase the number of, our corps of volunteers in order to further our mission in the community.
