Treehouse Museum is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to assist with programs and special events, and work as exhibit hosts. Treehouse can provide real-world, confidence-building experiences, and opportunities to acquire valuable job skills.

At Treehouse, we have several categories of volunteers.

Friends of Treehouse Volunteers

Adult volunteers who can commit to a regular schedule of volunteering can really make a difference to Treehouse’s school and public programs. Scheduled training sessions are required. Tasks include exhibit supply preparation, cleaning, and special projects for the first 20 hours of service and then helping with tours and theater programs.

Teens at Treehouse and are trained to help with ParticiPlays® in the Simmons Storybook Theater, assist with activities in the Art Garden, present Exhibit Spotlights, lead games and activities in the exhibit galleries, and prepare materials for exhibits or use in the Art Garden.

Those wishing to participate as Event Volunteers must audition and commit to rehearsals and a certain number of hours.
