Museums and Aquariums


Not only are museums and aquariums great places to learn but many also offer volunteer opportunities for kids and teens. Call the museum or aquarium in your area to find out what's available and what the requirements are. Opportunities vary greatly from museum to museum, so contact the one you're interested in and ask what volunteers do. At the National Aquarium in Baltimore, high school volunteers need to be at least in their junior year of high school and are recommended for the volunteer positions by their science teachers. Not all places have such tough requirements.
