Children’s Discovery Museum of the Golden Crescent is recruiting service-minded young adults (ages 14-20) to volunteer their time to promote the mission of the museum and serve as a youth ambassador to the museum community. Discovery Corps is a continuous commitment program with perks like group trips to museums out of town, professional skills for resume building, and admission to special CDM events. Participants are asked to commit to 4 hours of museum service each month and teach at one week of camp.
