Long term teen volunteer applications are full through June, check back this summer!  Special event volunteer opportunities are still available throughout the year.

KidsQuest teen volunteer positions are perfect for those who visited the museum growing up and want to give back to their communities through STEAM education and play! This opportunity is great for high school students who need volunteer hours or are looking for something to do after school. While supporting on the floor, teen volunteers have more independence to lead and engage in educational activities that match their interests. Teen volunteers will gain valuable work experience skills and create stronger community connections. Teen volunteer opportunities require a minimum three-month commitment of two or more hours per week.

Applications can be found here or feel free to email us. Once both applications and references are received, an interview and a background check will be conducted.

Please note only applications and inquiries sent by teenagers will be accepted. Applications sent by parents will not be accepted. Please reach out if you have any questions.
