Special Events Volunteer

Smithsonian Associates hosts a variety of large-scale events throughout the year that rely on volunteer support for their success.

These include our Smithsonian Sleepovers, where volunteers lead creative learning activities for children ages 8–12 years old, our annual Breakfast at the Zoo members-only event, and Smithsonian at 8 after hours events for young professionals.

To learn more about these occasional or one-time type of volunteer opportunities, contact our volunteer coordinator by email at or call 202-633-8596.
