Museum Teen Internship Application 2020
Love working with children? Interested in STEAM education? The Virginia Discovery Museum is looking for enthusiastic high school interns to join our team from June through August during our busiest season!

VDM is a nonprofit children's museum that offers hands-on exhibits, exploratory and imaginative play spaces, and educational programs for families with newborns to children ages 8. Located on the east end of Charlottesville's Downtown Mall near the Pavilion, the Museum is open Monday through Saturday, from 9:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m., and is available for private rental on Sundays.

Interns will interact with visitors, facilitate learning through exploration and play, and assist with educational programs and summer camps, all while gaining high school service credit and valuable work experience.
