ROMKids and Family Programs uses hands-on learning to highlight our amazing collection and cutting-edge research, takes a multi-disciplinary approach to programming, and works to connect children and their families to the exciting life-long learning available through our camps and public programming. Our programs seek enthusiastic, dedicated volunteers who love sharing the ROM with children and families.

Our volunteers help prepare materials, facilitate children's activities, provide excellent service, and escort children. Through this experience volunteers are exposed to many subject areas and experts, allowing them to learn about the various careers available in a museum.

During the 2013/2014 programming season, our 327 volunteers contributed over 28,000 hours! Check out what our volunteers have to say about their experience with ROMKids HERE.  Interested in joining our team? See below!
