Fernbank Youth Interpreters

The Fernbank Youth Interpreters volunteer program, also known as the FYI program, is an opportunity for youth ages 13-17 to be directly involved in public events and education at Fernbank Museum. 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 use interpretive 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.

Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2023-2024 program. Information on the 2024-2025 program will be available in February 2024.
