 Volunteer Opportunities

The United States World War One Centennial Commission receives no taxpayer funding and relies on private donations. We depend on our volunteers to help us achieve our mission to Honor, Educate, and Commemorate during the Centennial of World War One.

Volunteers are working in vital support roles all across the nation, at the national, state, and local levels. Click here to see what some of our volunteers are doing.

You can help! Your time, energy, and skills can help the World War One Centennial Commission accomplish its mission. We need people for both short and long term projects. You can research and write for our newsletters and podcasts, post events to our Website calendar, work on the poppy seed fundraising program, or serve as a regional coordinator or state volunteer. You can also help with events in your state or in Washington, D.C.

Will you play active role in the Centennial Commemoration? Fill out the form below to join our volunteer team.


We appreciate your interest in becoming a part of the volunteer team. To enable us to make best use of your time, we need some general information about you. This includes basic contact information and a sense of your skills and interests. We also ask that you provide an estimate of how much time you can commit to our team, so we know how much we can depend on you. Our Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch with you as soon as possible to discuss your participation. We may also share this information with State and regional commemoration commissions in your area.
