Teen Volunteers
 
The Schoolhouse Children's Museum is an ideal environment for teens to gain leadership skills, work experience and fulfill needed hours to meet school requirements. Teen Volunteers are an important part of the Schoolhouse Children's Museum and help us provide the best experience for members and visitors.
