To support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, all on-site Museum 2020 Junior Volunteer summer services have been canceled. Returning Junior Volunteers have been notified and can earn service hours through our virtual QuaranTeen program. New 2020 Junior Volunteers have been notified and will be accepted into the 2021 Junior Volunteer program without needing to re-interview, but pending the submission of a new application.
Applications for the summer 2021 Junior Volunteer program will be available at the Museum’s front desk and online starting Jan. 15, 2021.
Pre-teens and teens ages 12 to 17 work alongside Museum staff throughout the summer, sharing programs and exhibits with visitors. This is a great opportunity to serve your community while making friends who also love the Museum!
- All Junior Volunteers are trained and supervised. However, all Junior Volunteers must be able to work independently because supervisors cannot be present at all times.
- A variety of positions are available, including
- Discovery Cart attendant
- Discovery Zone assistant
- Camp teacher’s assistant
- Exhibit docent
- Collections assistant
- The JV Program runs on an annual calendar beginning in January when applicants may apply for the coming summer.
Thank you for your interest in the 2021 Junior Volunteer Program. All applications are due no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 12, 2021.
