Get Involved

There are a variety of ways to get involved in preserving Mahoning Valley History. We hope that you are already involved as a Member of the Historical Society, but there are many opportunities to support the Society through advisory committees, volunteer opportunities, and community partnerships.

Volunteer Opportunities

We always appreciate enthusiastic, diligent volunteers with a passion for local history. Since 1875, the Mahoning Valley Historical Society’s commitment to the education, collection, and preservation of the heritage of the local community has inspired people to get involved in ongoing projects and programs. Volunteers are the backbone of any non-profit organization and your participation in our mission is a vital part of our success. Welcome to the Mahoning Valley’s premier local history center as we continue to provide inspiration through heritage!

Young Leaders Advisory Board

The Young Leader’s Advisory Board assists the Mahoning Valley Historical Society in developing a membership base focused on those aged 21-50. The goal is to engage a new generation within the community; increase general awareness of the MVHS; increase participation in MVHS activities, events, and programs; and develop a future leadership of the Society.   The group meets once a month and plans the annual History to Go lecture series and a fundraising event.

  • I am interested in volunteering at MVH S. I volunteered in the past at the arms museum, I worked on translating Mr Wicks journals. I had to stop volunteering for health reasons at the time . But I am very interested in returning to help in any means. ( except lifting….I’ve had a back injury and I’m on disability) you can reach me at an y of these resources if you would like to use my help. Looking forward to hearing from you.. Thank you, sincerely. NANCY SMITH
