Teen Museum Volunteer Program
We have an exciting new volunteer opportunity for teens this summer!
In June and July, teenagers aged 14 and older, will get a chance to work alongside our staff in the Art Studio, Build It Lab, and Science Bar, or help as a camp counselor during the weeks of Summer Camp. Teens will be assigned to one of these areas for an entire week, giving them an opportunity to earn service hours for graduation while contributing valuable time to the Museum and our young guests.
Along with the volunteer application, every applicant must submit 2 letters of recommendation and attend an orientation. Orientations are scheduled for Saturday, May 20 from 10:30 to 12:30, and for Thursday, June 1, from 6pm to 8pm. Parents are invited and encouraged to attend orientation with their teen. Additional training may be required to work in certain areas.
We ask applicants to commit to at least 2 full weeks of service, however we will consider all applications submitted to us. Once the summer is over, all participants are assigned as active volunteers for the Children’s Museum and may volunteer during the year.
