Discovery Place Kids, Charlotte Nature Museum and Discovery Place are now accepting applications for the 2011 summer apprentice volunteer program. Teens who are selected to participate in this competitive program must commit to a minimum of 70 hours of service from June to August.
Volunteers are provided with an opportunity learn about museum-related fields, science and education and build critical job skills while working closely with museum professionals. Additionally, apprentices can participate in a variety of Discovery experiences.
The program is open to teens 12 to 17. The deadline to apply is Feb. 21, and teens can apply online at www.discoveryplace.org/support/volunteer.
