An internship is a commitment of 150 hours or more completed within well defined time parameters (usually a semester) for the purpose of gaining a hands-on learning experience. Generally, internships are held by college students studying in a related field, such as history, anthropology, or archival studies on either the graduate or undergraduate level. We do accept post-graduate interns who wish to hone their skills and beef up their resume with relevant experience. 

The Tarrant County Archives staff take an active role in helping those who have completed internships by writing letters of recommendation, helping develop resumes, etc. Currently, no paid internships are offered.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Tarrant County Archives offers many exciting volunteer opportunities if you love history. Each volunteer experience is geared towards individual talents and interests. Many volunteers do "a little bit of everything" until they find their niche.

 Most volunteers are on a regular schedule, coming in one morning or afternoon per week, depending on the desired amount of time they prefer to volunteer. Parking in the surface lot in front of the Tarrant County Plaza building is complimentary for volunteers that donate 3 hours or more.

If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, please contact the Archives. Additionally, you may fill out the Volunteer Information Form and mail, email, or bring it with you. If you have problem accessing the form please contact the archives at 817-884-3272 or
