Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering at the Immigration Station

We are looking for people who have interest in gardening, maintenance, leading formal group tours as well as volunteers that would answer questions in our self guided section of the museum.  Minimum time is one day a month, and there is no maximum to the amount of time you can volunteer.  Volunteers will also need to attend one Angel Island State Park New Volunteer Orientation held monthly at the park.  

Training will include a tour of the site and barracks building, orientation to the site facilities, as well as information about the renovation process.  

For sign ups and further information please contact Angel Island State Park's head of interpretation, Casey Lee at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or (415) 789-1384.


Volunteering at the Foundation

AIISF also needs volunteers for the Angel Island Immigrant Voices initiative.  We are seeking individuals who have research skills and a desire to conduct oral history interviews.  AIISF will interview detainees and descendants to gather new accounts of the Angel Island experience for educational purposes.  Volunteers will be trained on how to conduct oral history interviews, how to transcribe interviews, and how to research immigration files at the National Archives and Records Administration offices in San Bruno, CA.
