Team Tesla Volunteers will develop leadership skills while assisting Mid-America Science Museum staff members in the necessary duties to effectively execute daily operations as well as special events. This is an opportunity to take part in a volunteer program which will introduce students ages 14-18 to the world of volunteering in an environment which fosters a passion for science, technology, engineering, art, and math.
Team Tesla participants will be selected from a pool of applicants who complete the application process. The deadline for the receipt of the completed application packet is September 13, 2019. Those selected to move forward will be scheduled for an interview. Successful candidates will be notified by the end of the day on September 20th via phone call.
