The Adult Volunteer program offers volunteer sessions in 4 hours increments. Adult Volunteer applications are accepted on a rolling admission. Past Adult Volunteers have assisted in the Florida Naturalist’s Center, Education, Public Programs & Special Events, Bryan-Gooding Planetarium, Collections, and Guest Relations departments.
Adult Volunteers who are interested in becoming Docents must complete a week-long training and practice tours before giving Museum tours independently.
The Teen Volunteer program has three tracks. All Teen Volunteers must be at least 14 years old to 18 years old.
The first track is the Virtual Street Team which is a rolling admissions program that accepts applications year-round. The program allows Teens who need shorter time commitments to earn service hours. Teens can earn up to 5 hours a week. The Virtual Street Team shares social media posts to their friends and followers on the weekends.
After completing 25 volunteer hours, Teen Volunteers who would like to learn more and assist with on campus activities are invited to assist as Exhibit Guides, Demonstration Cart Assistants, in Creation Station, and with Public Programs & Special Events.
After completing 50 volunteer hours on MOSH campus and being juniors or seniors in high school, Teen Volunteers are able to apply and interview to assist in the MOSH Discovery Camps or in the Florida Naturalist’s Center in the Spring. They must attend all trainings before the beginning of Summer.
MOSH offers College Internships both for course credit and degree enrichment. Students will receive real-world experience working in a museum setting alongside museum professionals. Total hour commitments vary depending on the requirements of each student’s course, but we require at least 100 hours.
The College Internship program accepts applicants on a rolling admission. College Interns must be juniors or seniors in their major fields. Past College Internships offered include: Audiovisual Production, Communications & Marketing, Animal Caretaking, Finance, Community Education, Guest Relations, Technical Services, Marine Biology, Public Programs & Special Events, Natural History Collections, and History Collections.
