Volunteers on Tram


Become a Volunteer! From year-round horticultural and maintenance help to seasonal support in the Mansion, wine center, gift shop, admissions, transportation and special events areas, Sonnenberg needs your skills and service! The work of preserving our historic buildings and grounds and educating the public who visit would be a daunting task were it not for our dedicated volunteers. Volunteers of all ages will find a bevy of ways their helping hands can benefit Sonnenberg.

Wondering if volunteering is for you? Volunteering allows you to give back to your community or support an interest. But more than that, volunteering is a great way to meet people and make new friends including at events and parties. Volunteering is also a great way to learn new skills, build experience for a resume, and get college credit through internships and service projects.

Interested in coming aboard? We always welcome newcomers! Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (585) 394-4922 or by email for more information on how you can serve at Sonnenberg!
