The Summer Teen Volunteer Program at Greensboro Science Center is a great opportunity for kids ages 13-17 to have fun while learning about science.
There are several opportunities available, including learning to be an exhibit guide, a teacher’s assistant or an Animal Ambassador, and each one gives participants a chance to learn about interviewing for jobs, adhering to a job schedule, public speaking and more.
Those interested are asked to choose one area to apply for and to also list their second choice. There are typically more applicants than openings, and students who are chosen will be notified by May 9. There is a $25 fee for a T-shirt and a name tag once volunteers are selected, but otherwise the programs are free. Guilford County students can earn Service Learning hours in these roles as well.
The Greensboro Science Center is at 4301 Lawndale Drive. For more information and to download the Summer 2016 Teen Volunteer Program Guide, go to greensboroscience.org/support/volunteer/summer.
