Volunteer Opportunities

With so much happening, we need a vast roster of friendly, outgoing volunteers with a variety of skills. You provide the enthusiasm; we’ll provide the training.

Volunteers

Help with EdVenture events, community events, offsite programs and fundraisers including StoryBook Ball, EdVenture After Dark, Farmville, New Year’s Eve at Noon, Girls Night Out and more! Assist with set-up or clean-up, registration, greeting guests, providing directions, creating crafts or other tasks that fit your unique experience or expertise. Orientation and training will be provided prior to the event.

Exhibit Buddy

Exhibit Buddies have the power to transform the EdVenture experience for our guests! Engage children and families in play in EdVenture exhibit areas, read a storybook to kids in EdVenture's library, put on a puppet show, and keep our exhibit areas neat and tidy! This opportunity is very flexible- we need volunteers Sundays from 12-5pm and Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. We can work around your schedule!
