Children's Museum of Illinois seeking volunteers

DECATUR - The Children's Museum of Illinois is giving teens and adults the chance to make learning experiences memorable for visitors by volunteering throughout the year.

Adults who are interested in volunteering at the museum are invited to attend an informational open house on April 20, from 10:30 a.m. through 11:30 a.m.  During this open house, officials will provide a tour of the museum, as well as details on different volunteer opportunities, including education program help, admissions desk/gift shop, clean-up crew, and volunteering at special events.

Museum officials are also offering chances to volunteer to central Illinois teens.  A Junior Volunteer Program Information Session will be held for interested teens on April 29, from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.  Teens can earn service learning hours while participating in several volunteer opportunities, such as helping out with summer camps and special programs, face painting, and leading pop-up science demonstrations and activities.
