Recruiting Organization: State Museum Volunteers, Inc.

If you enjoy welcoming, teaching, and interacting with children and their families, this is the perfect opportunity for you!

On the first Saturday of every month, the Wyoming State Museum hosts Family Days, a completely free event series that welcomes families to experience the museum and engage with a variety of fun topics including:

  • Buzzing Bees (Sept 10)
  • Creepy Crawly Critters (Oct 1)
  • Día de los Muertos (Nov 5)
  • Space! (Dec 3)

While each month's theme is different, every event offers crafts, activities, and games that inspire children to get creative and learn about the world around them.

Volunteers in this role will get to interact with hundreds of families, facilitating games and crafts, sharing fun facts, and helping guests get the most out of their experience. Your shift will begin with a brief training on how you'll facilitate the activity or game that you are in charge of, then museum staff will check in with you regularly throughout the event to be sure you have everything you need.

Each event consists of two 2 hour and 45 minute shifts which can be combined to one 5 hour shift for those who would like to volunteer for the entire event. Any individual who is passionate about childhood education, families, crafts, and FUN should feel encouraged to volunteer. We welcome and appreciate people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities!

Benefits:

This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to develop teaching skills and help the families in our community become more connected with the museum and its exciting resources. Snacks will be provided. Volunteering in this role may lead to future opportunities working in the museum’s collections, education, and community engagement departments.
