If you are interested in volunteering on-the-floor with guests in the Discovery Zone, Expedition Health, Prehistoric Journey, Temporary Exhibits, Space Odyssey, or the Museum Ambassador Program, the deadline to submit an application is August 31, 2016 to be considered for placement in our Volunteer Program for 2016. We will continue to accept applications after August 31, 2016 and you will be contacted in early 2017 with information about the next steps in the application process.
There’s nothing better than receiving a warm welcome and useful information when you visit a place for the first time – or the 100th time! Museum Ambassadors provide excellent customer service by greeting guests when they first arrive, providing wayfinding throughout the Museum, answering phones at the Information Desk, and helping guests plan their visit. And that’s just a start! Museum Ambassadors also assist with special events and facilitate Exploration Stations (educational touch carts). Think of it this way, when you take out all of the major exhibits at the Museum, there’s still 90,000 square feet of space that guests can explore! These public spaces are where Museum Ambassadors operate. We are looking for friendly, enthusiastic, and flexible volunteers who are excited to learn what makes this Museum so special and how to share this knowledge with our audience. Maybe that’s you!
Cheerful disposition, comfortable approaching and assisting guests, highly flexible and versatile when responding to the needs of the Museum and guests, and ability to problem solve and work independently. Bilingual a plus.
On-the-job training by staff and volunteer mentors; occasional formal group trainings and enrichment.
Applicants must be able to volunteer for a minimum of 20 shifts within one year. Shifts of 3-4 hours available daily for morning and afternoon shifts; shift times vary for evening events. Two shifts per month minimum.
Available to individual applicants 14 and older. Younger applicants will be considered with family groups.
