Volunteer at Ashland

It is through the efforts of a vibrant volunteer program that Ashland is able to thrive.  A diverse, talented and well-trained group of volunteer guides conduct the majority of tours given at Ashland.  Many people choose to volunteer in the Museum Store, greeting people from across the country and around the world, selling tickets and helping visitors make the perfect selection from a wide array of store merchandise.  Others bring a willingness to help with school groups, special projects, programs or curatorial research.  You may also become a grounds ambassador, welcoming guests who may want additional information about the grounds and site history but don’t have time to take a regular tour. Whatever their task may be, all find their experience at Ashland rewarding and fun!

There are many ways to volunteer your time at Ashland including:

  • Giving tours of the house and the property
  • Assisting with special projects and events
  • Helping in the museum store
  • Helping with school groups and educational activities
  • Lending your unique talents to the estate
  • Becoming a grounds ambassador

No matter what volunteer path you decide to take,  you become a part of the remarkable legacy of Henry Clay and Ashland.  For more information on volunteering at Ashland, please contact Manager of Visitor Services Phil Janes at 859-266-8581, Ext. 202 or pjanes@henryclay.org.
