We are very proud to be the only active Serbian Museum in North America. We serve the community by preserving the irreplaceable legacy of our unique Serbian history and abundant culture. Our mission is to help people understand our rich heritage and the achievements of many Serbian people.

APPLY FOR AN INTERNSHIP
In 2013, the Serbian Heritage Museum partnered with New Beginnings Summer Jobs for Youth Program. The program is fully subsidized by the Ontario government as part of its Youth Opportunities Strategy and management by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.
The Summer Jobs for Youth program helps youths 15 to 18 years of age acquire workplace skills through summer employment. The goal of the program is to match youth with meaningful employment that matches with their future career interest.
For the Museum it meant that we gained a valuable intern who worked in the Museum from July to August and performed an excellent job. We highly recommend the Summer Jobs for Youth program and look forward to participating with this wonderful program in the future.

BECOME AN AUXILIARY MEMBER
The Serbian Heritage Museum is looking to form an auxiliary group to support the Museum in reaching its objectives of promoting and preserving Serbian culture and heritage.
The Museum achieves this through its emphasis on exhibits, publications, research, and educational programs, including lectures, films, plays, and concerts, etc. that highlight the richness of Serbian culture and ideas. All this is made possible by the successful fundraising initiatives spearheaded by its board.
If you are interested in exploring the arts and getting involved in the daily life of the museum we encourage you to become a member of the SHM Auxiliary. For more information on the auxiliary please feel free to contact us.
