Make a Difference – Next Volunteer Orientation Jan. 13
Pearl S. Buck International Volunteer Orientations return this month! We currently have a range of volunteer opportunities that offer many ways for you to make a difference. Register for Volunteer Orientation to learn how you can join a special group of men and women volunteers who advance the mission and impact of Pearl S. Buck International. Orientation will be at Pearl S. Buck International, 520 Dublin Road, Perkasie, PA on Thursday, January 13, 2022 at 1 pm.
The Volunteer Orientation Session includes learning more about the mission, touring the National Historic Landmark property, and discovering how you can share your special talents with a nonprofit organization that has an inspiring legacy of bridging cultures and changing lives in your community and across the globe.
Volunteers at Pearl S. Buck International choose from a wide array of tasks. These include serving as a tour guide for visitors to the National Historic Landmark Home of Pearl S. Buck, helping with the archival collection, working in the International Gift Shop, processing letters from sponsored children, or assisting with special events such as the annual Holiday Craft Show or signature Taste of the World reception.
Volunteers are also invited to bring their special talents to the organization. This has resulted in many wonderful projects such as a public quilt show, book discussion groups, a Pearl Buck play, a photographic book of the Pearl S. Buck House, and more. At this time, we are most in need of tour facilitators and docents as well as volunteers to assist with curatorial work, but if you discover a passion for our work and mission, we will find a place for you!
Pearl S. Buck International is following all current state safety and health protocols regarding COVID-19 to protect the well-being of all guests, staff, and volunteers. At this time, masks are required inside all our buildings and on all tours regardless of vaccination status.
