Though we are thankful for our volunteers here at Discovery World each and every day, in light of National Volunteer Week, we would like to take a moment to extend a special thank you to the hundreds of individuals that make a difference at Discovery World each year.
Established in 1974, National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. It’s about taking action, encouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the center of social change—discovering and actively demonstrating their collective power to foster positive transformation. We at Discovery World encourage you to take a moment this week to embrace the spirit of National Volunteer Week, and to explore volunteer opportunities in your community, whether at Discovery World, or elsewhere throughout the Milwaukee area.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Discovery World relies upon its dedicated volunteers in roles both behind-the-scenes, such as exhibit maintenance or office support, as well as with the public, assisting with educational programming, special events, as crew members aboard Discovery World’s tall ship, the Sailing Vessel (S/V) Denis Sullivan, and throughout our exhibit areas. To our volunteers, we cannot thank you enough—for the thousands of hours you have donated, whether hiding 20,000 Easter eggs throughout the museum for Discovery World’s Spring Fling Egg Hunt, or teaching guests about the human genome, and for your unwavering commitment to Discovery World’s mission to educate, motivate, and inspire the innovators and entrepreneurs of the 21st century.
