Named in honor of Harry and Anna Jeanes, our Volunteer Team enriches the museum experience for visitors by helping them interact with our indoor and outdoor exhibits.

General Description: A Greeter will act as a point of contact for all guest questions regarding exhibit content, museum wayfinding, and other questions they may have. Greeters provide direction to additional educational resources such as visitor maps, scavenger hunts, and Spark Carts, located throughout the museum. This position offers a more personal guest experience to all Mayborn visitors by helping to foster a welcoming, safe, and supportive educational experience.
