Discovery Corps Camp Assistant Teen Opportunities
The Discovery Corps Camp Assistant program exists to foster student interest in science, education, and the Perot Museum through the contribution of student volunteer service. Teens will discover new interests in nature and science, develop leadership and communication skills, and earn service learning hours by assisting in summer Discovery Camps and engaging Museum guests throughout the permanent exhibit halls.
Due to the large number of students who have applied for 2020 Discovery Corps, no NEW applications are being accepted. Those students who have applied and submitted documents will be contacted in March with dates for April group interview opportunities.
For those wishing to apply for 2021 Discovery Corps, applications for next summer’s program will open in November 2020.
College Internship Opportunities
Museum internships provide an opportunity for current undergraduate and post-graduate students to build professional and educational skills while providing service to the community.
