We can’t say enough about all the wonderful people who help transform the lives of thousands of children each year by giving time and energy to the Children’s Museum of Southeastern Connecticut. Our volunteers tell us that they get much more out of volunteering than they put in – so, something special must be happening here!
Whether your talents are in construction, computers, or working with children, we need your help! You can shine in the lives of children throughout the region by volunteering two hours or more a week, or month. Let us match your talents and interest with a meaningful task here at CMSECT.
Many times we can use your specialized talents in custom-tailored positions not listed here. Volunteers at this museum are treated like the professionals they are and will be fully trained by the museum staff to ensure that everyone is comfortable with the tasks at hand.
As a volunteer, you will receive the heartfelt appreciation of all at the museum and of many small people as well. There’s nothing more gratifying!
