Anyone 18 or under must have their background check form notarized and signed by a parent or guardian. If you are college student and live away from home you will still have to have your parents print it out, sign it, and send it to you via mail or email. This is due to required state law. If you have questions you can call 407-477-4000 ext: 105 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please bring an I.D. when you drop off your application.
How long does the application process take?
Once we get your application, we will submit your DHHS form for a background check. Those usually take 2-3 business days to get back. Once your background check is approved, information about orientation will be emailed.

How many hours can I volunteer in a week?
Volunteers sign-up for their own hours. Sign up is first-come, first-serve so sign up early to get the dates, times and tasks that suit your schedule best.
What types of tasks do volunteers do at the Lincoln Children’s Museum?
Due to the state of the nation and health, the tasks include cleaning mostly at the moment. We will be working on Virtual Opportunities and Event Opportunities as the year progresses and we find our new rhythm in this environment.
