  • Hi, my name is Leanna and I would like to volunteer at the children museum this weekend on 5-4-19. Please give me a call at 713-449-9322 or email me

    • Hi Leanna – Please visit https://www.cmhouston.org/volunteers for more information about volunteering at the Children’s Museum. You can still apply to be part of the Summer Discovery Squad program if you’re interested in that. I think you need to have some training and be part of a program instead of just volunteering for a day or two. You can contact them and ask, though. Thanks for helping out!
