Explore & More Children’s Museum is a non-profit organization that serves the Western New York Community with high-quality play-based learning for children in ages ranges of 0 to 12. I helped the organization by being an extra set of hands on days where they offered free extra activities to the families that visit the museum. I enjoy working with the employees to create such a fun environment for all kinds of families.
My experience while working with Explore & More was beneficial to me as a professional because with becoming a graphic designer, sometimes a child’s imagination and creativity help spark and bring out some of my creativity and help me see things in a way I may not have before.
Communication skills, strengthening values, and respect for diversity were definitely benefits of working at Explore & More. The children that I’ve met have come from a few different walks of life and it has helped me realize that everything that we say and do around the children affect them greatly and impact how they act/react to how they view the world. With my experience at Explore & More, I have also learned to have a lot more patience with children and the way they do things. — Maria Deveso, Graphic Design
