Volunteer Opportunities


OSR has a wonderful group of volunteers who share their time assisting with tours and various events at OSR.

Our team of volunteers helps to ensure the preservation of this magnificent structure.


OSR will begin accepting volunteer applications in September 2018 for the following year. *

*Please note: The Ohio State Reformatory does require a 1 year training program for all new volunteers and a time commitment of at least 25 hours in the first year. A current BCI background check is also mandatory. Not all applications will be selected. The Reformatory has a limited number of volunteers to accept each year.
