Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers: Join our group of community volunteers, students, medical and nursing students and medical professionals who have fun, make new friends, gather needed service hours and learn about science and the human body - all while helping The Health Museum be the best we can be.

Interns: We have undergraduate and graduate student internships, internship partnerships with the Smithsonian as well as work-study opportunities for Baylor College of Medicine medical students, the University of Houston undergraduate students and undergraduate students from St. Thomas.
If you are interested in an internship with the Museum please contact Paige Burgess.

Summer Youth Volunteer Program: For high school students, ages 16-18, during the summer only.

Service Programs: If your company, or organization, requires volunteer hours we can help! Let us know what you need and we can put together a volunteer schedule and program for your group.


Summer Discovery Camp Youth Volunteers: Students, ages 16 - 18 (by May 1), have the opportunity to work one-on-one within our summer camp programs relating to medicine, science, robotics and sports. Week-long camps run from June through August, Monday through Friday. Camp hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Each camp requires a youth volunteer to support the needs of our young campers. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up for more than one week of service. Those that have successfully completed the required youth volunteering orientation do not have to fill out another application.

High School youth 16 to 18 are introduced to the museum in the summer months only. To be selected for the team of youth volunteers, teens must fill out an application. Applications are reviewed as they come in and accepted on a rolling admissions basis until the recruitment goals are met.


Discovery Cart Volunteers

Help the exhibits come alive! Staff a mobile information station where Museum guests can choose to briefly interact with a ‘real live’ person inside the exhibits. Carts include a variety of models and demonstrations featuring the circulatory system, respiratory system and general nutrition.

The following information is a copy of the cart curriculum. This information is also available in hard copy form at each discovery cart.
