Pearl S. Buck International currently has a range of volunteer opportunities that offer many ways for individuals to make a difference.
Register for Volunteer Orientation to learn how to join a special group of men and women volunteers who advance the mission and impact of Pearl S. Buck International. Orientation will be held at Pearl S. Buck International, 520 Dublin Road, Perkasie, on Thursday, September 17, at 10:30 am. Registration is now open.
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 tasks as varied as 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 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.
Pearl S. Buck International has implemented strict health and safety protocols due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic to protect the well-being of all volunteers, visitors, and staff. Read more details at pearlsbuck.org/reopening/
