School Year Volunteers

During the school year, first-time applicants are considered for the Youth Event & Exhibit Hall Team. Volunteer opportunities on the Youth Visitor Experience Team are by invitation only during the school year and are limited to those who volunteered for a previous session.

Exceptional school year volunteers are invited to join the Youth Visitor Experience Team, the Summer Camp Team, or the Field Trip Team for the summer session. Acceptance into the school year session does not guarantee acceptance into the summer session.

All applications must be submitted by August 18, 2017.
