Conner Prairie is an Interactive History Park in Fishers, Indiana. Our Youth Volunteer Program teaches youth history in a hands-on immersion environment, making learning painless, personal, and fun. Youth volunter in both historic costume and modern clothes in areas of our historic grounds such as 1836 Prairietown, 1816 Lenape Indian Camp, Animal Encounters Barn, 1863 Civil War Journey, Textiles, and special events. If you enjoy leading activities, history, science, people, public speaking, and don’t mind a little old-fashioned sweat and hard work, this program may be for you! Open to youth ages 10-18. Volunteer term lasts at least one year with a minimum of 120 hours required. We are most active in the spring, summmer, and fall.
Application process is extensive. The applications for the 2016 season can be found online at http://www.connerprairie.org/Support/Volunteer/Youth-Volunteer#Youth and are due January 6, 2016.
Youth and their guardians are invited to an optional Info Meeting Dec 6, 7-9p, at Conner Prairie, 13400 Allisonville Rd, Fishers, IN.
