Thank You 2017 Volunteers

Posted on January 24, 2018 | WOW! Children's Museum

All of us at WOW! Children’s Museum would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our amazing volunteers for their time in 2017. We had over 170 volunteers donate more than 2,300 hours of their time to WOW!  According to, the monetary value of a volunteer hour is $24.14. That means that the value of the time our volunteers has put in with us is estimated at more than $57,000!

However, we know that there is more than just a monetary value to our volunteers. Within those 2,300 volunteer hours we had volunteers help “behind the scenes” with the installation of our Make It Go! exhibit, painting projects, exhibit maintenance, materials preparation, and general upkeep of our exhibit pieces.  Our volunteers on the Museum floor worked with children in the art room, as exhibit guides, providing face painting, yoga classes, and story times. We also had volunteers come in to help with events, such as our family dance party, WOW! at Night events, and with our WOW! On Tap fundraising event. It is safe to say that each of our 90,000 visitors last year were impacted by the time and dedication of our volunteer team. The work that we do at WOW! would not be possible without the support of our volunteers, and we are very grateful for every person and every hour that they spend here. We’re excited to see how we can work together in 2018!
