The volunteer program at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center allows people the opportunity to contribute to the mission while following their interests. We want our volunteers to be inspired through their passions and our exhibits. Their inspiration will reflect on our guests, giving everyone a better experience. We also want our guests to be inspired by our volunteers. Guests will take this inspiration back to their communities, making them a better place for all who live there.
Modern-day slavery does not care who you are, what you look like, or where you come from. It can happen to anyone—any of us—at any given time.
It is estimated that 20-45.8 million people are enslaved in the world today, in every country in the world today, including the United States. Although exact numbers are difficult to pin point, in the U.S. we know that in the past eight years more than 31,600 total cases of human trafficking have been reported to the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
