Work & Play @ the CMA: Volunteer Today!

Want to make a difference in your community? Looking for a way to lend a hand? Need extra service hours for school? Then volunteer at the CMA!

Volunteers will interact with museum visitors, foster learning through discovery and play, develop new skills, work with a team, make projects with children and know that their service touches the lives of families and children every day!

Volunteers must be enthusiastic and hardworking, not afraid of a challenge or getting their hands a little dirty! Experience is not required but a love for children and an excitement for learning is a must.
