Our community volunteers are the driving force behind the DISCOVERY Children’s Museum ability to meet the educational needs of the children of Southern Nevada.
Community Service Projects
We encourage corporations and community organizations to bring groups of two to 20 volunteers to engage young people in science, technology, engineering, art, and math activities on the museum floor. We offer half-day (4-hour) or full-day (7-hour) activities with no experience or training necessary. Often community volunteers are asked to help facilitate programming, work one-on-one with students and parents to reinforce museum educational goals and objects, prepare materials for future programs, or greet guests as they enter the museum. Additionally, we can work with organizations to develop and facilitate special programming that serves the unique mission of the organizations and the museum (i.e. water sustainability, financial literacy).
Educating our Teens
Do you or your organization have a special skill set or expertise you would like to share with teens in our volunteer and YouthWorks program? How about sharing your education or life journey with them? Let us know and we can help facilitate a class or talk. Our teens get a tremendous amount of value from learning new skills and being introduced to new subjects. A conversation can truly change a life!
