Rising Grades 9-12 (in 2019-2020 school year)

Junior Volunteers are teenagers who are passionate about communicating the wonders of science and the natural world with others. Junior Volunteers assist and interact with the public and provide them with the opportunity to have up-close, hands-on experiences with natural history objects from the Museum’s collections. Volunteers commit to weekly 3-hour shifts for 10 weeks, June 18–August 15.

Fee: $50/year. Fee covers orientation, food for end-of-year party and Junior Volunteer T-shirt and nametags.

Please note that this application-based program is highly competitive, and we receive more applications than we can accept. Online applications for the 2019-20 program will open in January, 2019. Program runs on a summer schedule, June–August.
