Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer at the Reagan Library. Our volunteers play a vital role in the activities at the Reagan Library. They supplement the staff in important ways with special talents and knowledge that might not be otherwise available.

Please note that you must meet the following requirements in order to be qualified as a NARA volunteer: you must be 16 years or older and meet one of the following three requirements: (1) you must be a U.S. citizen; (2) you must be a legal resident alien [possessor of a green card]; or (3) you must be a holder of a type A1 or A2 diplomatic visa. If you do not meet these requirements, we will not be able to accept your volunteer application.

The next step in applying to become a volunteer is to complete the NA6045 form. Your answers to the questions will enable us to see where you might best help our program and what activities would be most fulfilling to you. Many of the questions are self-explanatory. Others might need a little explanation.


Please note that a background check will be necessary, depending on the type of volunteer service you will provide and the kind of access you are granted to our facility. For further information about this step in the application process, please contact the volunteer coordinator at (805) 577-4079.
