Polaris volunteers fill a variety of roles at the Museum-from greeting guests as they enter the Museum, to helping out in the Museum Store.

Volunteer Opportunities

Other opportunities for volunteering include: assisting with special educational programs; assisting on Friday nights at Martinis & IMAX®; providing customer service in our Museum Store; working in our gardens; helping facilitate special events; performing light office work and more.

Being a part of Polaris benefits you as well. In addition to the benefits of membership, you'll also receive complimentary admission to IMAX® films, earn guest passes for hours of service, participate in on-going educational opportunities, and receive invitations to fall and spring field trips and the annual awards dinner (with awards for hours of service).

Get Involved

Join Polaris and Fernbank Museum and commit to one 4-hour shift per month and 48 hours annually. In order to be eligible, potential volunteers must complete an application, attend the required orientation and training session(s) (dates to be determined) and submit to a background check.
