Becoming a volunteer

Hooray! You want to volunteer at the world’s biggest and best children’s museum! There’s just a few steps left. Between turned-in applications to interviews to start date, getting onboard here can take between 30 to 45 days. During this time, we’ll explore options with you, show you the museum, and get to know each other! It’s a journey, not a sprint, so we appreciate your patience. If you’re selected, just think about how many lives you’ll impact with your service! Hint: It’s a lot.

The first step in your volunteer journey begins with our brief, online application. A detailed description of our process can be found in this PDF.
