Volunteer

Do you feel like an outsider when it comes to lawmaking and politics? There’s no easier way to get inside than​ to volunteer. Volunteers learn  how laws are made and how to use that information to build their political futures and help their communities.

Volunteer in Visitor Services

Providing non-partisan assistance, volunteers help at the information kiosk, in the store, at special events and during session as chamber ushers in the galleries. Volunteers provide guided tours including information about the legislative process. Click here​ to find out more or download the application.pdf.
