Become a Volunteer

As a volunteer, you can put your passion for the city into action. If you want to help preserve the things that make Detroit unique, then we want you.

What do volunteers do?

  • Lead tours across the city

  • Represent Preservation Detroit at events

  • Research historic neighborhoods and buildings

  • Plan a lecture or social event

  • Archive historic artifacts

  • Welcome new visitors to Detroit

  • Fundraise on behalf of Preservation Detroit

  • And more!

I love meeting people from all over the world who have taken an interest in our city. I love the faces on people who are amazed at Detroit’s history and architecture.
