  • Volunteering at The Children’s Playhouse

    **As of 8/23/2021: All volunteers must provide proof of covid-19 vaccination.**
    The Children’s Playhouse is greatly indebted to all the volunteers who have contributed to the museum since the beginning and who continue to make it a safe, fun, and creative place to be! Volunteering at The Children’s Playhouse meets the requirements of many service learning classes and we attract interns from a variety of fields including child development, sociology, art, and education.  We also welcome volunteers of all ages from the community.

    We have individual and small group opportunities for volunteers to help with our daily operations as well as one-time opportunities connected to special events which are more appropriate for larger groups as well as individuals. We also offer internships for more extensive experiences. 



    Volunteers interact with families, sanitize toys, and prepare art projects. We appreciate the help of 1-2 volunteers whenever we are open (9:30-5:30 Tuesday-Friday, and 9:30-3:30 Saturday).

    To get started, please fill out the online volunteer application. You will be notified if your application is approved in a few days and then you will be able to sign up for a training session and for volunteer shifts.  Click here to watch The Playhouse volunteer training videos. There are eight videos but it will take less than ten minutes to watch them all.You will be expected to watch the volunteer training videos and successfully completed the quiz before your first volunteer shift.

    The Playhouse offers internships year round from a variety of fields. All interns get experience in with Playhouse day-to-day operations but additionally pursue projects related to nonprofit management, social work, fundraising, education, recreation managment, and social media marketing.
