The Zimmer Children’s Museum strives to cultivate brave and generous thinkers. Through immersive play and real-world activism, we guide children and youth to recognize injustice and possibility within their communities and beyond, and to take meaningful, collaborative and collective action to create a better future.
Program Description: There are various types of volunteer roles, but all volunteers help with the essential day-to-day functions of the museum. By volunteering at our museum you will be reaching out to families, children, and museum-goers alike.
Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities: We have various types of volunteer roles that need to be filled at the museum (volunteer descriptions can be found here: https://www.zimmermuseum.org/pdfs/Volunteer%20Types_2015.pdf). All of the volunteer positions help out the museum in its daily functions/efforts to provide an arts based education and cultural awareness to children, youth, and their families.
Time Commitment: Must commit to 2 hour shifts at least once per month, 10AM - 4PM M-F, 12PM - 4PM Sun.
Requirements: All volunteers must fill out a volunteer application, complete a background check, and go through an interview process. Clothing policy for volunteers: Volunteers must wear the Zimmer Children's Museum volunteer t-shirt when working. Volunteers are not allowed to wear tight fitting clothing. Skirts and shorts must be at least mid-thigh when seated. No visible rips or tears in clothing. Closed toe shoes are required when working on the museum floor.
Volunteers should have experience in Art, Culture, Recreations & Sports, Education & Child support.
Benefits: Volunteers get the chance to gain hands-on experience working with young children in an informal educational arts-integrated setting. They will also get a chance to help develop curriculum, facilitate activities, and learn more about arts and early childhood education.
