Kidzeum is always looking for volunteers!

We have a handful of specific volunteer roles available. Read through the descriptions and email us to apply. Thank you for your interest!

Volunteer Play Specialist

Do you enjoy working with kids and families? Does the idea of interacting and engaging with them throughout the museum space excite you? Then you will love serving as a Volunteer Play Specialist! The Volunteer Play Specialists will be out on the museum floor, moving around, interacting with kids and families and helping to create a safe and fun environment for kids of all abilities!

Administrative Volunteer

Do you love the idea of being able to help serve Kidzeum and Springfield from behind the scenes? Kidzeum has a need for people to help us with general administrative tasks including updating community calendars, program preparation and data entry. 

Volunteer Party Host

Do you enjoy serving as a party host? Kidzeum has a regular schedule of birthday parties and we need your help to host them! 

Special Event Volunteer

Can't volunteer on a regular basis, but want to be notified of other various volunteer opportunities throughout the year? Kidzeum hosts events during many special occasions, such as exhibit openings and holidays. Special event volunteers participate during these types of events and often run craft stations and interact with our guests.
