Ready to become more than just a visitor? Through volunteering at the museum, teens like you can learn more about art, history, science and culture, and then share your knowledge with visitors. Meet people from around the world, discover new things and help visitors enjoy the museum.
What do teen volunteers do?
Teens work with departments in the museum on a variety of tasks and projects including:
When I’m a volunteer, how will I know what to do?
Don’t worry, we’ll train you. Although many of our volunteers have strong backgrounds already, you don’t need to be an expert to volunteer. Before you begin working at the museum, you’ll complete a training program. When you’re working here, there’s always a staff person available to answer your questions.
What do I get out of volunteering?
I want to volunteer, what do I have to do?
Start by filling out a teen volunteer application form. We accept applications year-round; however, you won’t start until after you’ve attended a training session.
