Q?Crew Assistant Teen Volunteer Coordinator
The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) seeks a contractor to provide coordination and logistical services in support of the implementation of the Q?Crew youth volunteer program at NMNH. The Q?Crew is a corps of teen volunteers ages 14 to 19, whose purpose is to use communication and technology to engage with youth audiences visiting Q?rius, an exhibit-sized interactive space designed especially for young people to discover their personal connection to science and the natural world, along with other exhibits within NMNH.
The goal of this position is to assist the Q?Crew Lead Teen Volunteer Coordinator in the management and direction of teen volunteers during their volunteer shifts. When the Lead Teen Volunteer Coordinator is not present, the Q?Crew Assistant Teen Volunteer Coordinator will function as the main point of contact for the teen volunteers when they are at the Museum. The Assistant Coordinator will also assist in the implementation of the training curriculum and continuing education in conjunction with NMNH educators. Another important component to this position is serving as the participants’ mentor, ensuring their immersion and integration into the museum environment and giving feedback and guidance as they facilitate visitor experiences in the Museum. The Assistant Teen Volunteer Coordinator will also assist with several Youth Programs projects, including the new Youth Ambassadors Network, a network of current and alumni participants from all NMNH youth programs who will serve as advisors and promoters of programming. The work will begin on or around February 8, 2016 and continue through December 9, 2016.
Applications are due on or before 5 p.m. in the vendor's time zone on February 4, 2016.
