Volunteers Keep MDM Strong


Join Our Team!  It's Too Much Fun!

Do you like laughing?  Playing?  Creating?  Are you friendly?  Outgoing? Energetic?  Excited about our museum?  Do you enjoy creating a festive atmosphere for children and families?  Or perhaps you have a special interest in woodworking, art, sound studios, education, or child development.  We want everyone involved to help children become excited about their world!

Our purpose is to encourage creativity, nurture a sense of wonder, and to challenge all to learn in new and innovative ways.  We can't do this without volunteers!  A typical time commitment would be a minimum of four hours per month.  Depending on your availability however, alternatives can be arranged.

In addition to making a difference in lives of children...
  • After volunteering for 20 hours earn 2 single admission passes (saps).
  • After 50 hours earn an additional 4 saps.
  • After 100 hours earn a 10 saps or one family MDM membership per year.
What can I do to help? Glad you asked! Here are some of the ways people help make the museum run:
Discovery Guides greet visitors, direct them to exhibits and special programs, facilitate interaction and answer questions at specific exhibits.
Special Program Facilitators will assist at events of all kinds -- birthday parties, for example!
Program Teachers are volunteers with a skill or special interest that could be offered as a program. Maybe you have a special trade or tradition that can be passed on to younger generations.

If you can help, please let us know!
