Get Involved

There are several ways you can help Preservation Detroit’s work on behalf of Detroit’s built environment. The easiest thing you can do is become a member of Preservation Detroit. Your membership dues help us fund key programs. Membership also provides you with a voice in the discussion about the city’s future.

Your member also entitles you to discounted tickets for tours, a regular newsletter, invitations to special events and more. A variety of membership levels are available for you to choose from, so you can choose one that’s right for you.

We also appreciate the time and assistance of volunteers of all stripes. If you’d like to lend a hand, we’d love to have you aboard. Just fill out a volunteer form and our staff will contact you to discuss the details.

If you are a student, Preservation Detroit also offers internships. Check out our internship page to learn more.
