Sacramento Children’s Museum is in need of some volunteers to help out with daily activities at the Museum. All interested applicants can fill out an application on our website, www.sackids.org or come in to the Museum during regular hours and fill one out in person. We will be holding a mandatory volunteer orientation in the near future that all potential volunteers are required to attend.
Volunteer duties may include:
-Help in exhibits and programmed activities in the museum
-Assist Museum staff as needed with crafting, interacting with children on the museum floor, etc.
-Opportunities to perform demonstrations, plays, musical performances and storytelling
-Guide Museum visitors through the exhibits and activities
-Join Museum staff at Evening Special Events such as fundraisers, Beary Special Dance Parties, Birthday parties, member only nights at the museum and sponsor nights
We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities here at the museum including:
-Docent: A docent is a volunteer educator that will be stationed at one of our exhibits. Volunteers that have their days free and are interested in teaching youth in the community how SCM’s exhibits work are perfect for docent positions. Docents would be trained on all of our exhibits including Raceways, Airways, Waterways, Solar Race, Leo’s Market, Art Studio, and My Neighborhood to create a more inviting visitor experience and guarantee our visitors a day full of learning!
-Exhibit/ Program Volunteer: Daily time on the floor working alongside staff members. This would include interacting with museum guests, maintaining museum exhibits, and enforcing the museum rules. Any volunteers interested in doing everything, this is the opportunity for you!
-Family Volunteering: Families with children under the age of 15 are encouraged to bring in their families to help out with any of the duties in the museum, from prep work to special events and projects. We welcome kids six and over as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
-Special Events: This type of position is for volunteers who would like to be contacted when we have a special event going on at the museum, such as a fundraiser, or a public event like Free Museum Day.
-Material Prep: An opportunity to help prepare materials for arts and crafts, activities or other events going on at SCM.
