The Louisiana Children’s Museum islooking to recruit approximately 60 student volunteers age 15 and up to assist us with their summer camp program, which runs from June 4 - August 10th all day from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Student volunteers are asked to choose between a 7:30 to 3:30 or a 8:30 to 5:00 p.m. shift, but they are somewhat flexible within that range. They do require a minimum of a one-week commitment, or approximately 40 hours.

They have long-standing robust summer camp that local children attend year after year on a weekly basis (20 children ages 5-8 per camp).

Students will be under the supervision of the Camp Directors, Camp Assistant, as well as our administrative education staff: Education Director, Early Learning Manager, and Visitor Experiences Manager. Together they will orient, train, manage, track, discipline, and monitor student volunteers.

This is a wonderful learning opportunity for students required to earn service hours; students will be engaged with young children in various activities, facilitate their play in the museum during museum time; assist with before and aftercare activities, and depending on their skills, assist with or guide some of the camp art, STEM, or health and fitness activities.

Please note that they have revised their student application to REQUIRE one letter of recommendation, and they also ask for more details on the student’s skills so they can place he/she according to skill and interest. There are also more opportunities than summer camp, and students who express interest in helping with education programs, Art Trek, or special events, can earn hours in these roles as well.

Student applications must be turned in by May 15th to ensure that students can attend one of their mandatory orientations on either May 26 or June 2. APPLICATIONS MUST BE SCANNED AND EMAILED BACK to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or dropped off in person at their front desk at 420 Julia Street.

The Arc of Greater New Orleans (ArcGNO) Mardi Gras Recycle Center is one of five social enterprises operated by ArcGNO. Arc is a 64-year-old non-profit organization that supports people with intellectual disabilities, such as Down syndrome and autism. During the weekday, their recycle center has three full-time employees on staff with disabilities and more than 75 Arc team members on a part-time basis. While participants put in a lot effort and hard work, it’s volunteers who put them over the finish line, and this year, their goal is to collect and sort 310,000 pounds of Mardi Gras beads.

For the 2017-2018 school year, they are opening the recycling center on the weekend with the hopes of encouraging area high school students to volunteer. This is a very casual volunteer site that offers the opportunity to meet new people and have fun, while at the same time helping a non-profit that relies heavily on volunteers throughout the year.

The Arc Mardi Gras Recycle Center will:
▪       Open on the second Saturday of each month for volunteers
▪       Open on the last Sunday of each month for volunteers
▪       Time for both dates will be from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

They ask that those who wish to volunteer to commit to doing a block of hours. Essentially, a student will only be committing to four days during a four month period. As of now, they will break up the year as such:
▪       Block 1:        September – December
▪       Block 2:        January – April
▪       Block 3:        May – August
