A camp counselor is surrounded by young campers

WHAM’s youth volunteers have been a vital part of the success of our camps as well as many other special projects at the museum. Volunteering is a great way to begin to build a resume, earn school volunteer hours, make new friends, and develop leadership skills. We believe that each volunteer can offer something unique to our programmes, whether you have a special talent, interest, or just enjoy working with kids.

Who can attend?

The Youth Volunteer Mentorship Programme is offered to youth ages 13 and older. After successful completion of the museum orientation, volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in programming, help plan and implement camp events and activities, and take part in off-site trips.

Returning youth volunteers are eligible to enroll as mentors. Mentors will partner with new participants and have the additional responsibility of planning WHAM’s hugely popular Night at the Museum.

2018 Date:

Orientation takes place Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Pizza lunch will be provided.
