Volunteering and Internships at Louisiana Children’s Museum

Volunteer Opportunities

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, school break, and Summer volunteers on a rotating basis. All high school volunteers MUST be 15 years old and have completed their first semester of 9th grade by January 1 to volunteer. We also have opportunities for college and adult volunteers on weekends and some weekdays during the year.
