Come be part of the volunteer team that sparks curiosity and ignites learning alongside our visitors here at MOXI. Whether it is engaging guests at exhibits, tinkering in the Innovation Workshop, or guiding field trip exploration, MOXI volunteers are one of our most valuable resources as we both engage and serve our community through interactive experiences in science and creativity. Learn, play, create, build, and share in the excitement.
MOXI is currently seeking teen volunteers (incoming 9th - 12th graders) for our 2021 Summer Camps. These volunteers will support MOXI staff for a whole week at a time. It’s important that you are available for the whole week of camp so that campers can get to know you and so that you can effectively help campers with projects, engage them in games and activities, and help supervise during snack and lunch times. While summer camp volunteers must be available for the entire week of camp (M-F), you can choose from a morning, afternoon or full-day shift. If you are interested in volunteering with us this summer, please email Linnea Landgren, Floor Staff Supervisor at email@example.com. We will contact you soon about training and with more info.
Please note: this program is temporarily suspended. Check back later for updates on the program + the application process.
MOXI is seeking teen volunteers who are motivated to gain education and customer service experience in an informal museum setting. Volunteering is a creative and engaging experience. You get to explore museum exhibits while helping generate excitement and curiosity about science. Volunteers are responsible for greeting visitors, directing visitors to relevant information, and helping maintain a clean and safe environment.
Volunteers typically come to MOXI for 2.5 hour shifts and can sign up for weekly or monthly shifts. Interested in gaining more experience + further developing your skills? Volunteers also have the opportunity to join our team of MOXI Volts in a 9-month volunteer program – more info on the Volt Program below.
The Volt program is a free 9-month teen volunteer opportunity that provides participants with on-the-floor museum work experience coupled with monthly professional development training sessions.
Our monthly Volt meetings are a chance to check in with your peers and learn valuable skills. Training topics range from workplace professionalism (e.g. resume writing, networking, and email etiquette) to more MOXI-specific fun stuff (e.g. 3D printing and museum behind-the-scenes).
MOXI Volts have potential! And we seek to maximize that potential.
