Looking for Volunteers!

Socialize, Network, Learn, and Contribute!

lisabennettOur volunteers make up a close community of like-minded people who share a common interest in the fascinating realm of parapsychology and consciousness. Being a Rhine Center volunteer is extremely rewarding and has distinct advantages, such as having the opportunity to network and socialize with world renowned parapsychology experts and researchers and others with similar interests.

Volunteers are offered special incentives including: attendance at Rhine Center programs and social events, and special discounts. Consider becoming a part of one of the oldest and most respected centers of its kind in the world. Please contact Lisa Bennett, our Volunteer Coordinator or call the Rhine Center at (919) 309-4600 for further information.

Volunteers' meetings always take place the third Tuesday of the month.

The Rhine Center volunteers have been preserving and organizing their abundant newspaper and magazine articles dating back to the 1930s. Susan Freeman and Pamela St. John have been leading monthly “Archival Work Sessions” in the Rhine Research Center Alex Tanous Library since last February, and are always happy to have more volunteers to join them at the table. Time is spent reading fascinating articles and labeling them with date and category. Snacks or lunch can be brought, although we eat them in the kitchen

If you would like to help please sign up with Lisa. Thank you for all your help!

We have come a long way! We are starting to create the actual notebooks for all of the articles, and now we are starting on photos, and of course there are still more articles! It is always fun and informative, and we would appreciate your help. Bring a lunch or a snack.

Place: Alex Tanous Library, Rhine Research Center
