POSTING – WonderTrek Children Museum 

POSITION/TITLE: Playful Connections Program Manager

SUPERVISOR: Museum Project Director

PART-TIME: 20 to 30 hours per week


WonderTrek Children’s Museum, an emerging museum in North Central Minnesota for

children, families, and educators, is looking for a dynamic and dedicated employee to fill

the role of Program Manager for its Playful Connections studio explorations programming.

This position will join the project team in developing and implementing Playful

Connections, a new 18-month regional program funded by the Minnesota Legacy, Arts,

Culture, and Heritage Fund. Through Playful Connections, WonderTrek will engage

children and adults in play-based studio explorations to help design an "up north"

signature climber experience reflecting regional art, culture, and heritage. Special attention

will be paid to engaging families from a diversity of backgrounds and lived experiences at

WonderTrek’s studio space at the Franklin Arts Center and at remote venues through the

region. Particular attention will be paid to reaching families experiencing participation

barriers. By bringing together diverse perspectives to share ideas in a studio learning

process adapted for WonderTrek’s audience, Playful Connections empowers children to

lead the way to a more connected region and state through the power of play.
