Thank You, Washburn University Leadership Institute!

Thank You, Washburn University Leadership Institute!

We were happy to host a group of students from the Washburn University Leadership Institute for a fun evening of volunteering last week! The mission of the Washburn Leadership Institute is to further develop students into ethical and intentional leaders who value diversity and are prepared to immediately exercise effective leadership in today's changing society by cultivating the study of leadership and facilitating transformational learning experiences designed to challenge, motivate, and inspire.

This group of students were fantastic volunteers! They worked together to clean a few of our most important play experiences: the art pavilion and Imagination Playground big blocks, both critical tools for child-led, educational play.

Washburn University Leadership Institute has done multiple volunteer days at the museum. With 15,000 square feet of indoor exhibits and 4.5 acres of Certified Outdoor Exploration Classroom, the volunteers stay busy!

Kansas Children’s Discovery Center offers high-quality, interactive experiences to inspire a lifelong love of learning for every child. Volunteers support our mission by creating these memorable experiences for every family who walks through our doors. Volunteers engage children in fun educational activities, pitch in at special events, maintain our outdoor space, and keep exhibit areas ready for play.

If your organization is interested in a fun volunteer day at the Kansas Children's Discovery Center, call our volunteer coordinator at (785) 783-8300. We have indoor and outdoor projects for any size group.

Thank You, Thank You, Washburn University Leadership Institute!
