Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities

Miami Children’s Museum has many volunteer opportunities available for teens (ages 16 and up), adults and groups. Volunteers interact, teach and inspire museum visitors. It is through a volunteer’s graciously donated time and talents that we can better meet our mission – to enrich the lives of all children by fostering a love of learning and enabling children to reach their highest potential. We are always looking for energetic individuals to help us bring the Museum to life. Volunteers of all abilities, interests and schedules are needed. Please note that certain volunteer positions require criminal and drug screening.
