Group Volunteer Request

  • Group Volunteer Description

    Our Group Volunteer program allows organizations to explore the children’s museum environment, interact with children and their grown-ups, and work on team-building skills. Potential roles that group volunteers may participate in are as follows:

    • Exhibit Support: Volunteers will help support museum staff by assisting in facilitating play with children and their grown-ups, helping reset exhibits, and assist in activities. This is perfect for small sized groups (7 volunteers max per shift)
    • Administrative Support: Volunteers will help prep various upcoming art projects and programming (if you are a moonlighting artist, this is perfect for you and your group!), updating spreadsheets, assembling boxes for our grocery store, stuffing envelopes, packing give-away bags for events, and more! This role is great for any group size.
    • Special Events Support: Volunteers will help support our staff during various special events throughout the year. This role includes helping to set up, break down, and helping facilitate activities during the event. There is a lot of fun interface between guests and the volunteers. This role is perfect for any group size.
