The LJHS relies on the support of its community volunteers. Our current volunteer opportunities include:

Events: Support by helping with exhibit openings and special events including:

Collections: Work with the Collections Manager on projects with archival material.

If you are interested in donating your time, please contact the Office & Events Manager

La Jolla Concours d'Elegance: Volunteering at this one of a kind event is an excellent - and fun - way to help LJHS with one of its primary fundraising events. Volunteer for a half day and then enjoy the world-class display of historic, classic cars on the grass at Scripps Park. Sunday Volunteers will be provided lunch, a Volunteer hat, and general admission to the event. To volunteer for the Concours click here.

Secret Garden Tour: Visitors from throughout San Diego County and beyond have the opportunity to view private gardens in La Jolla during this important Society fundraiser that supports our education and public programs. Volunteers are needed at private gardens throughout the day.
