    The Owensboro Museum of Science & History, founded in 1966, is located in downtown Owensboro, Kentucky. Housed within an historic 19th and early 20th century building, the museum is a gathering spot, a learning center and a family-friendly entertainment experience.

    The Junior Volunteer program is for students ages 12 to 17 years old. A core group of 10-15 students are chosen from applicants that show maturity, ability, and the willingness to help others.

    Program year runs from June until April with new applications taken in April and early May for the program. Students help with summer programs and activities, and are given the opportunity to volunteer at the museum during many of the special events that take place during the school year at the museum.

    Orientation and training are given to those chosen to participate in the program.
