Human Origins Exhibition Volunteer

Volunteers will facilitate meaningful and interactive experiences
using exhibition-based, learner-centered activities and programs
designed collaboratively by the Office of Education and the Human
Origins Program for the Human Origins exhibition to stimulate
awareness and understanding of what it means to be human. Volunteers

of humans in terms of the scientific evidence for evolution discovered
and explored by the museum's scientists and their colleagues.
