Volunteering is the best way to bridge the gap between your skills and passions and the needs of our community. At Imagination Station, you are on the front lines for hands-on science education in our community, and you will find that your volunteer experience will not only be fun, but also inspirational to others!

As an Imagination Station Volunteer, you can …

  • Learn new and exciting science
  • Form vibrant new friendships
  • Build job skills
  • Find a place to belong
  • Make a difference in the lives of children and families
  • Earn a membership to Imagination Station
  • Gain a behind-the-scenes perspective of the science center
  • Establish references for education and employment

Requirements

We ask that each reoccurring volunteer commit to at least 10 hours of volunteer time per month, for a minimum commitment of 6 months.  Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. Potential volunteers are asked to fill out the appropriate application and go through an interview process, including a background check and drug screen.
