About Volunteers and Docents
Volunteers and docents have the opportunity to gain exposure to the workings of a major regional museum through participating in all aspects of operations. Volunteers can work in a number of different departments and provide invaluable support. Our volunteers possess a passion for and appreciation of learning, a flexible attitude, and an understanding that reliability is critical.
In order to work or volunteer with children, docents and volunteers are required to obtain clearances which may include the following: Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance, Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check, and Federal Bureau of Investigation Criminal Background Check.
If you have questions regarding the clearance process, please visit www.KeepKidsSafe.pa.gov. Individuals seeking clearances can go directly to www.compass.state.pa.us/cwis to create an individual account and apply for their child abuse clearance electronically.
Thank you for your continued commitment to keeping Pennsylvania’s children safe.
