Being a non-profit organization, the Northwoods Children's Museum relies on the the help of volunteers to continue to operate. Every year volunteers work the equivalent of a full-time staff person. Volunteers also help the museum raise money through events such as special event parking, brat sales or fundraisers.

A few hours a year can add up for the museum as well as our community. You'll get to learn new skills, meet a diverse of people and enjoy a sense of personal achievement. Volunteers as young as 10 years old are needed and welcome.

Coffee Connections - Adult Volunteer Program

Volunteers meet most Mondays for lunch, conversation and a few hours of various projects that benefit the museum and the families that visit. Begin at Noon with coffee and lunch then assist with tasks around the museum until mid-afternoon. Join in anytime!
