Every year, OCHS is fortunate enough to receive community support from young volunteers. High school students, from across the county, give their time to assist the Osceola County Historical Society's preservation and education programs. Volunteers assist with educational initiatives at the Welcome Center and Pioneer Village, including Field Trips and Osceola Explorations Summer Camp. Our volunteeers have also participated in efforts to host Dine with the Departed and Pioneer Day.
