Volunteer at the i.d.e.a. Museum!

Want to make a difference in the community by helping to develop and expand a child’s knowledge and appreciation of art? The i.d.e.a. Museum is looking for volunteer support for its ongoing programs and special events.

MEET MICHAEL JUNG

Michael has been volunteering as a storyteller for over a year, and says he loves sharing stories with the enthusiastic preschoolers and their families here at the i.d.e.a. Museum.

 

Michael holds a Ph.D. in children’s literature from ASU and in recent years has been a children’s book reviewer for several magazines and scholarly publications. You can catch Michael telling stories several days a week in ArtVille, as part of the museum’s daily Artful Tales program.

Fred has been volunteering at the museum for eight years, and as a retired engineer, he says he was looking for something fun and meaningful to do with his time.

 

“I love telling stories, so I mostly do the museum tours for the younger kids. I go home feeling really good because I know I did something worthwhile that influences the future of children. The museum is a terrific place to be.”

MEET ERICA SNYDER

Erica has been connected to the i.d.e.a. Museum for five years. As the Events Manager for Downtown Mesa Association, she regularly partners with the museum to bring events to downtown Mesa, encouraging families to explore activities in the community.

 

Erica is currently a volunteer museum board member and feels her contributions are really about bringing people together.

 

“I’m a connector of people. Being able to help with membership and getting more people here to the i.d.e.a. Museum excites me!”

Nipuni Siyambalapitiya is a new volunteer here at the museum. A product designer by profession, Nipuni is also a classically trained singer and music teacher and is especially excited about working with museum educators to create new music activities.

 

"I enjoy volunteering here at the i.d.e.a. Museum because it has all the ingredients I like – community base support and working with children to enhance their creativity.”

MEET JOE CORSARO

A retired police officer, Joe Corsaro has been volunteering here at the museum for five years. In addition to serving as a regular volunteer, Joe is also a current member of the museum’s daVinci Society. He says giving back to the City of Mesa is important to him.

 

“I chose the i.d.e.a. Museum because my wife and I used to bring our grandchildren here. It makes me feel like a child again. I enjoy seeing the children playing and interacting with their families. Time spent with your children is the best time you’ll ever spend in your whole life."
