Fernbank is a not-for-profit natural history museum, giant screen theater and old-growth forest. Home to the worlds largest dinosaurs, Atlantas biggest movie screen and one of the largest assemblages of urban Piedmont forest in the United States, Fernbank brings science to life through immersive programming and unmatched experiences that encourage a greater appreciation of our planet and its inhabitants.
The Fernbank Youth Interpreter (FYI) program, is an opportunity for youth ages 13-17 to be directly involved in public events and education. FYI volunteers must commit to the program for a minimum of one year and provide a minimum of 45 hours of service to the museum.
FYI volunteers run discovery carts, sharing information about biology, archaeology, paleontology, and more with visitors of all ages. They also help with educational activities at special family events, summer camp, other special projects, and have opportunities to tour and visit behind the scenes.
