Volunteers are the heart of our museum. With the help of our talented Heart Guides, Docents, Interns Ambassadors and General Volunteers, we are able to provide the best possible experience for our visitors. There are many ways to get involved with the Halle Heart Children’s Museum; explore a few of the opportunities below to get started or click to here to see a list of real-time volunteer opportunities.
These dedicated team members educate over 3,500 students each year through our school tour program. Each Heart Guide receives extensive training and ongoing education.
- Must be available to give tours 2 or more times every week during the regular school year
- Have a flair for public speaking
- Tour guide experience is not required, but is a plus!
As a Docent, during our public hours you will work with individuals and small groups to deliver hands-on educational experiences that promote a heart-healthy lifestyle. Often you will be responsible for interacting with guests on the self-guided tour to provide additional information or direction or lead a special activity or cooking demonstration.
Whether you have one day to dedicate or want to establish a set volunteer schedule, we can use your help! The Halle Heart Children’s Museum engages volunteers to help us with everything from sending thank you notes and invitations, providing social media support, cleaning, organizing or making and answering phone calls.
We welcome volunteers 10 years or older (10-17 yrs must be accompanied by an adult) as well as groups.
Want to make the world a more heart-healthy place? Our volunteers are essential to the day-to-day operation of our museum and keep things running smoothly. No job is too big or small for Lub Dub’s mighty volunteers! Join us today by completing a volunteer application!

These opportunities are scheduled as requests come to us.
