Natural History Museum of Utah hosts over 45,000 elementary students each year on field trips!


Each year the Natural History Museum of Utah hosts over 45,000 elementary aged children. We need volunteers to help ensure a smooth orientation for students to the Museum, and to help foster a good experience with natural history. As a Field Trip Assistant volunteer, you will be able to play a part in igniting a young child's life-long passion for science. You'll gain valuable experience working with children and with large groups, and get specialized training to learn to share the content of our exhibits in a meaningful way.

Field Trip Assistant volunteers will work with staff to orient K-12 school groups upon arrival, and provide information and help to ensure school groups feel accommodated and supported throughout their visit. They will convey and reinforce behavioral expectations, and will engage students in the Museum's galleries as they experience the wonders of the natural world.
