Get hands on with Duke Homestead. We are always looking for volunteers to help with day to day site operations as well as collections research and special events. Duke Homestead loves volunteers of all ages. Our Junior Interpreter program gives youth ages 8 - 18 a change to learn about history through hands on costumed workshops and participation in special events.
