The National Museum of Language is a start-up museum based in the Washington, DC, area, dedicated to educating and informing the general public about all matters related to languages and linguistics. Its focus is on language as it relates to all aspects of life, human development, and human history.

We periodically send out a call for volunteers to help us develop several projects related to the establishment of the museum. Volunteers are needed to help us in the following areas:

Grant writing
Speaker series
Young Linguists Program
Web Museum

There are many levels of involvement that may assist educators and professors in fulfilling requirements for service, while working in languages and linguistics. The museum also provides an opportunity for student volunteers to gain valuable professional experience. Language professionals or non-linguists who are interested in volunteering time to a museum for language are also encouraged to contact us.

Please contact Helen Carpenter at carpenth at if you are interested in volunteering or supporting the National Museum of Language by becoming a member. If you are interested in becoming involved with the Programs Committee, please contact Lauren Raivel at lauren_raivel at

Please feel free to forward this e-mail to anyone else you think may be interested.

Thanks, and we appreciate your interest.
