We’re always looking for outgoing, energetic, passionate volunteers

By becoming a DCM volunteer, you will become part of the Museum’s dedicated effort to ignite the full learning potential of children through hands-on play. You can expect to play, learn, serve, and change lives. We offer a variety of opportunities to best fit your skills.

“I am 76 years old now, been retired for 28 years, and I feel the need to contribute back and help others. It is fun to watch the kids try to figure out how to work an exhibit that I have helped build.”

Dave Dumford, volunteer at DuPage Children's Museum since November 2001
