Calling all lesbians who have a passion for our herstory, insatiable curiosity, some free time, and like spending time with other dykes…
Since its beginning, the Archives has always been completely managed and staffed by volunteers from the lesbian community. We have never had any paid staff and have relied solely on volunteers to process all materials, raise all necessary funds, and literally keep the doors open.
The Archives’ structure/process combines individual autonomy with group goals and consensus decision-making. We seek to match interns with their interest areas, based on a wide variety of options. However, volunteers (including coordinators) staff the Archives, answer and return phone calls, and do the general work of keeping the Archives functioning on a day-to-day basis, and we expect interns to do the same.
