VOLUNTEER TO PLAY!
The Adult Volunteer Program is for those 18 years and older who are looking for a unique and fun place to spend their valuable free time. Adult volunteers assist in sparking curiosity and igniting a love of lifelong learning by interpreting exhibits content to children, preparing programming materials, facilitating special STEAM themed activities, supporting our Outreach Team at community events, and working behind the scenes in the office, and with the Exhibits and Facilities Team.
THE FOLLOWING ARE WAYS IN WHICH YOU CAN VOLUNTEER:
Gallery Assistant: Assist with groups and/or families visiting the museum by enthusiastically interpreting exhibits content. Help transform the visitor experience into one they are sure to remember. Must enjoy working collaboratively with young children and adults.
Special Event Staff: Assist with preparation and facilitation of special project activity tables, fundraising events, and adult and member parties. Evening time events will vary.
DCM Ambassador: Join our Outreach Team and attend community events to spread a love of the arts and sciences through the facilitation of interactive projects.
Guest Speaker: Do you have an interesting career, talent or hobby? Share it with our visitors, staff, teen interns and volunteers.
Exhibit Assistant: Work with the Exhibits and Facilities team to repair, maintain, relocate, and set up exhibits.
Office Support: Assist with clerical/office work such as filing and data entry.
Seamstress: Seeking volunteers to help us sew new costumes and repair existing costumes used at our performing arts stage in our Fantasy Festival gallery. We provide the fabric and the machines for handy crafters who can help us create and repair costumes for our patrons.
Volunteers are required to submit an application, apply for a background check, and attend a Volunteer Orientation. Volunteer schedules are flexible and no experience is necessary. For your convenience, a link and log in information to a quality, compliant background screener will be provided, upon receipt of your application and consent. Please note that a fee, from the screener, is associated with the screening.
Upon receipt of your application and approved background check, applicants will be invited to attend a mandatory Volunteer Orientation. Orientations normally take place a couple times per month.
