Adult Volunteers

Thanks for your interest in becoming a Thanksgiving Point Volunteer! Volunteers play an integral part at Thanksgiving Point by:

  • Helping guests learn about our different venues and how they connect to the natural world
  • Assisting with the delivery of educational programs
  • Staffing special events
  • Helping with cooking and arts classes
  • Assisting various departments through clerical opportunities

We accept applications from volunteer candidates age 18 years and older on a quarterly basis. All volunteer applicants will be invited and are required to participate in an open orientation before they are eligible to be interviewed. Applicants who fail to attend the orientation will have their applications denied and are subject to a one year waiting period before they can re-apply. Register to volunteer here.

Internships

The mission of Thanksgiving Point is to provide transformative family learning. Educational advancement through internships is one of these opportunities. Thanksgiving Point is home to the Museum of Ancient Life, the 55-acre Ashton Gardens, an actual working Farm Country, and the family science Museum of Natural Curiosity. We also host educational classes that range from culinary arts, to horticultural design and agriculture, to science and business.
