Each year, we have an absolutely wonderful group of young volunteers in our youth volunteer program. Tuesday, an informational meeting for prospective youth volunteers will be at 7 p.m. in Lilly Theater inside our Welcome Center.
The application process is highly competitive. Just 100 spots are available and typically, hundreds of youth apply each year.
The program teaches youth ages 10-15 personal development skills in a hands-on, immersive and fun environment. Youth volunteer in both historic costumes and modern clothes throughout the museum’s historic grounds, indoor experiences and more. Youth also volunteer at special events that Conner Prairie stages throughout the year.
Staff members guide them throughout the year to help them develop and enhance people skills, including how to speak with, interact with and engage visitors of all ages. Youth are required to volunteer for a full year and give a minimum of 120 hours.
Applications for the 2018 youth volunteer program are online and are due by 11:59 p.m. Jan. 5.
