There’s a lot to be said for volunteering. People who volunteer build social connection, promote goodwill in their community, and tend to have better mental health. And you know what else they do (at the Halle Heart Children’s Museum, anyway)? They have FUN! After all, where else can you blow up balloons for a dance party and call it community service?
The HHCM is always looking for folks to join us in our mission to educate Americans about heart-healthy lifestyle. You don’t have to be a heart expert to help out. (Though if you ARE a heart expert, we’re a perfect fit for your talents–come on down!) We offer numerous volunteer opportunities anyone with a willing spirit can do.
Our volunteers give their time to a wide variety of projects and responsibilities on a group or individual basis. Recently, some of our volunteer projects for groups have included preparing snacks and supplies for Heart Walk,
packing hats to be delivered to babies through our Little Hats, Big Hearts program,
and helping out with administrative tasks.
We’re a great option for workplace groups, service clubs, families, or other groups looking for an enjoyable, meaningful way to give back.
As for volunteer opportunities for individuals, we welcome assistance with our programs (give a healthy cooking demo on a Saturday, for example, or referee Video Game Olympics on a Thursday afternoon). Leading tours or facilitating education during public hours as a museum docent are other ways to spread the message of heart-healthy living at the HHCM. And don’t worry–we’ll provide you all the training you need. Visit our Volunteer Match page for a list of current options.
If, on the other hand, you’d like to create your own Halle Heart adventure, we can make that happen, too! Check out the Get Involved page on our website to get some more ideas of how your time and talents could align with our mission. Then feel free to get in touch with Volunteer Coordinator Lori Selles at email@example.com. She would love to work with you to determine what type of activity works best for you.
When you volunteer at the Halle Heart Children’s Museum, you can rest assured you’re giving your time to improve the health of our community. Every day children and their families pass through our doors to experience the magic of learning heart-healthy behaviors in the museum environment. Any amount of time you can donate to help this cause is welcome.
