Through the Anchorage Museum’s teen volunteer program, teens get the opportunity to learn from experts in the fields of art, history and science. Then, they get to share their knowledge with museum visitors from around the world. Our teen volunteers take on many roles, such as:
  • Man the marine touch tank, teaching visitors about sea stars, crabs and more
  • Give public demonstrations with live animals, including snakes, lizards and spiders
  • Lead hands-on activities in exhibits, including art projects and science experiments
  • Help out at our fun summer camps
