This session explores the different ways teens can contribute to a museum as volunteers. What unique qualities do teens bring? What are the challenges in engaging and sustaining teens? What types of volunteer roles work best for teens? How can teen volunteers contribute directly to fulfilling your mission? Presenters will share their ideas and experience to get a conversation started with you. Those considering initiating a teen volunteer program will have the opportunity to learn the “hows” and “whys” of engaging this age group in museums of all kinds and sizes.
