Help Spark Imagination
Be part of something extraordinary! Volunteer to help spark young minds through the unlimited power of learning and engaging through play. Our volunteers get an inside look at what makes Spark so unique and impactful. Groups or individuals are encouraged to apply to help make a difference in the Rochester community. As a non-profit, we are always looking for energetic volunteers who want to work and PLAY in a fun environment. We have opportunities for everyone – from high school students to retirees!
Join the Volunteer Squad!
Spark’s volunteers are essential to our visitors' experience at Spark! Our volunteers play an important role in day to day museum operations; introducing our exhibits to new visitors, interacting with guests in the museum, and assisting with programs and events both at Spark and out in the community.
Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of 30 hours in a 6-12 month period.
Volunteers that reach 50 volunteer hours will be given a 1 year family membership.
Flexible volunteer hours available from weekly, monthly, occasionally and special events
(Students 9th-12th Grade)
Volunteering at the children’s museum is a great way to build your leadership and communication skills, serve your community and gain valuable hands-on experience.
Students 9th - 12th grade are encouraged to complete a volunteer application form.
Two references will be required for all student volunteers.
*Letters of recommendation may be written upon request for students completing 30+ volunteer hours
(18 yrs +)
We have a variety of ways that volunteers can interact, teach and inspire children and families visiting the museum.
We hope that you will consider sharing some of your time and talents with us. From storytime to gardening, to building or painting - we have a wide variety of ways for you to get involved!
If you find joy playing with children, supporting their parents or have a special skill you would like to share with the community, consider volunteering at Spark!
