Community volunteers are a key ingredient to a successful museum project. We are so pleased with the tremendous support and interest this children's museum has generated in our local area.  So much talent, background and experience we have available from the folks who live and work in our surrounding communities!

We know the impact people have to influence the future. What better role models for children than the people who volunteer their time and knowledge to support children's education. Parents and families will be pleased with the individuals who are committed to this children's museum and who are preparing the programs, activities, and exhibits to enhance and enrich the lives of children.

Join us by becoming a member of our strong volunteer cadre. Our Volunteer Coordinator, Eileen Bond, is a volunteer. She is assisting us in developing our list of fine individuals to work in the museum and to work on tasks associated with the museum.

Prescott Area Children's Museum has no paid staff. We are looking for key volunteers to assist with planning, securing a location, programming and of course, fund raising. If you are interested in making this vision become a reality, please contact us or download and fill-in our handy Volunteer Interest Form or the full Volunteer Application (Adobe PDF). You can simply fill them in on your computer and submit it by email with the click of a mouse, or print it out and mail it to us.
