Volunteering and Internships at Louisiana Children’s Museum
Are you outgoing, friendly, enthusiastic and dependable? Do you like to play? Volunteer at the Louisiana Children’s Museum and help us build and connect our community through play. LCM volunteers help families to learn and play together, strengthening our community!
Volunteers are an important part of making the Museum such a magical place; they help to enhance the quality of visits for our guests and they also provide the expertise, creativity and manpower needed to plan and implement our special events and educational programs. Volunteering at the LCM can also be a great way to meet people! It is our goal to provide a volunteer experience that is rewarding to everyone involved.
We accept applications for weekend, Spring Break, and Summer high school volunteers on a rotating basis. All high school volunteers MUST be 15 years old and have completed 9th grade by January 1 to volunteer during the Spring semester and by June 1 to volunteer during the summer months. We also have limited opportunities for college and adult volunteers on some weekdays during the year.
The Art Trek Volunteer’s primary responsibility is to teach hands-on art lessons to Museum guests in the art studio, Art Trek. The Art Trek Volunteer will assist the Art Educator in facilitating daily art projects with guests in the studio as well as help with necessary set up and clean up. As comfort level builds, the Art Trek Volunteer will be able to take on and lead certain projects in the studio. When applicable, the Art Trek Volunteer will assist with art installations around the museum and documentation of visitors in the studio.
Applicants must submit a current resume and one-page cover letter to Vanessa Fung, Art Educator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Portfolio work a plus. No phone calls, please.
