Did You Know?Jack Read. Jack also created a special volunteer recognition board to give staff an opportunity to share why they value our volunteers:
In 2012, 274 dedicated volunteers, interns and work-study students collectively served more than 12,300 hours. Volunteers guide inspiring play and learning experiences and greet visitors at the Admissions Desk and Gift Shop each day. Behind the scenes, they complete research and evaluation projects, assist with fundraising events, prepare mailings, and much more.
"The interns in our program are responsible, reliable and passionate about working with at-risk families. Some have stayed on for full-time positions, which shows how much they care."
– Heidi Brinig, Families Together Program Director
– Jennifer Laurelli, Director of Development
"We’ve had a great group of exhibit interns. They help us create our new play environments and provide us with so much new energy."
– Robin Meisner, Director of Exhibits
"Whether they are playing a game, reading a story, or talking with other volunteers and staff, their smiles and their love for the Museum are contagious. I appreciate the joy volunteers bring to the Museum, not only for visitors, but for staff as well."
– Julie Burkhard, Volunteer & AmeriCorps Coordinator
