Being a non-profit organization, the Northwoods Children's Museum relies on the the help of volunteers to continue to operate. Every year volunteers work the equivalent of a full-time staff person. Volunteers also help the museum raise money through events such as special event parking, brat sales or fundraisers.

A few hours a year can add up for the museum as well as our community. You'll get to learn new skills, meet a diverse set of people and enjoy a sense of personal achievement. Volunteers as young as 12 years old are needed and welcome.

Adult Volunteer Program

We are always looking for volunteers to perform various projects that benefit the museum and the families that visit.

These include:

Creating arts and crafts for the Art Room

Light cleaning

Handyman work

High School Volunteer Program

Starting in September, high school students come to the museum after school based on their availability and assist with various projects. Many students take advantage of this program to fulfill community service requirements. This also helps instill a sense of pride in community for high school students.

Youth Volunteers (YVs)

Program for 12 - 14 year olds
Be a part of a creative and energetic environment where volunteers are encouraged to have fun as they work. Plus YVs learn leadership skills and learn how to work as a team with their peers. YVs will assist museum staff one day a week at their choice of  3-hour shift from 10:30 - 1:30 or 1:30 - 4:30.
