All students interested in joining Marbles Teen Play Corps must attend an information session to be considered for selection. Prospective Teen Play Corps volunteers should attend with at least 1 parent or guardian. You only need to attend 1 info session. All sessions will be held in person at Marbles Kids Museum.
Teen Play Corp applicants are required to submit two recommendation forms. Recommendations can come from current or former teachers, coaches, activity leaders, family friends or someone else who knows you well.
If selected, all Teen Play Corps participants are required to attend one in-person session of Basic Training. At Basic Training, participants will get to know each other and Team Marbles, participate in leadership development activities and learn how to lead play the Marbles way. Additional training, leadership and meet-ups will happen throughout the year.
Teen Play Corps participants who are interested in volunteering in summer camps must attend in-person camps training.
Teen Play Corps volunteers have two ways to volunteer from June-August:
Summer Camp Support: Play with children ages 3-10, assist staff with set up and break down of activities and help campers make Marbleous memories.
Commitment: Minimum of three weeks. Middle school students may volunteer for half days. High school students may volunteer for full or half days. Participants may only volunteer for two consecutive weeks.
Teen Play Corps participants have lots of ways to play throughout the school year. You're encouraged to volunteer as often as you like and for a minimum of one shift per month.
