  • Marbles Teen Play Corps

Applications are now being accepted for the 2023 class of Marbles Teen Play Corps. Marbles TPC is a leadership volunteer corps for rising 7th + graders who are interested in building leadership skills and working alongside Team Marbles to spark imagination, discovery, and learning. Marbles Teen Play Corps participants playfully engage with younger kids through hands-on learning and play in Marbles exhibits, programs, camps, events, and the community.

Marbles Teen Play Corps is a great opportunity for students who love working with kids and who want to work on leadership skills. It gives them a chance to be role models for younger kids and learn alongside their peers. Opportunities for group get-togethers, additional training, and skills workshops will be available throughout the year.
