150 W. Pepper Pl.Mesa, AZ 85201


i.d.e.a. Museum gallery volunteers have an important role in our visitors' experience. They interact with our visitors by facilitating activities, encouraging children to explore, and answering visitor questions. Volunteers also monitor our galleries, re-stock supplies, maintain a safe and fun learning environment, and help out with materials prep and cleanup. Volunteers may also assist with our daily story time, art classes offered at the museum, and other special programs and events.

This is a great opportunity for:

  • High school or middle school students who need service hours
  • College students who need course-related service learning hours
  • Retired educators who want to continue working with children in a fun educational setting
  • Those interested in art education or museums
  • Everyone in between who is interested in gaining experience working with kids!

Formal education experience is not required and training will be provided. Please plan to attend one of the following hour-long volunteer orientation sessions. All orientations take place at the museum.

  • Saturday August 5 at 10am
  • Saturday August 19 at 10am
