Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer with the MS Children's Museum-Meridian. Volunteers are needed to engage with children in a fun, educational environment as well as assist in maintaining the galleries including prop pickup/restock and sanitization. The volunteer shifts are 9am-1pm or 1-5 pm. Volunteers select shifts that are convenient to their schedule on a monthly basis.
An MCM-Meridian volunteer must work a minimum of 10 hours per month.

The process for becoming a volunteer includes three steps:

1. Please complete our online application.
2. Once references are checked, you will receive a link to sign-up for a one hour orientation session at our museum.

During this orientation you will receive your volunteer attire and learn important information about museum operations. You will also receive one hour of community service for attending this orientation.
3. After you complete orientation, you will be sent a link to sign-up for volunteer times that work with your schedule.

We are excited about your interest in MCM-Meridian. If you have questions, please contact Whitney Gowdy via the email address below.
