The Teen Volunteer Program is for high school students ages 14 to 17 who are looking for a unique and fun place to earn community service hours and gain work experience.
Teen Volunteers help bring the Museum to life for visitors and are given a chance to receive one-on-one coaching from our experienced staff members. They assist in sparking curiosity and igniting a love of lifelong learning by interpreting exhibit content to children, helping to prepare programming materials, facilitating special STEAM-themed activities, and assisting with special events. All that is required is an interest in supporting our mission and spending time with visitors both young and old. Schedules are flexible so as to work around school schedules and no experience necessary to join our team of Teen Volunteers. We will work to match your skills and interests with the needs of the Museum.
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 and fundraising events.
Birthday Experience Assistant: Assist with Birthday Experience room set up and clean up, as well as preparation of materials.
*Please note: Teen Volunteers are not presenters but we do invite those interested in applying for such a position to do so once their volunteer experience comes to an end, so long as they are at least 18 years old.
