April 17-23, 2022, is National Volunteer Week

We are so thankful for our volunteers who help support our mission to spark imagination for all children and their grown-ups!

From field trip helpers to landscapers, volunteers are an integral part of what we do at the Children’s Museum of South Dakota.

While we appreciate our volunteers all year long, National Volunteer Week is a special time set aside nationwide to celebrate the impact that volunteers have on our community.
