Volunteer to Play!
The Teen Volunteer Program is for high school students ages 14 to 17 years old who are looking for a unique and fun place earn community service hours and gain work experience. Teen volunteers help bring the museum alive for visitors and are given a chance to receive one-on-one coaching from our experience staff members. They assist in sparking curiosity and igniting a love of lifelong learning by interpreting exhibits for school groups and/or families, facilitating arts and science activities, and assisting with the exhibits departments or special events. All that is required is an interest in supporting our mission and spending time with visitors young and old. Schedules are flexible as to work around school schedules and no experience is necessary. We will work to match your skills and interests with the needs of the museum.
