Student Volunteers

Upcoming Volunteer Events & Opportunities 

Listed below are a handful of volunteer events and opportunities available to any students or staff members wanting an open and insightful experience with the Earth Sciences Museum. Events are usually lengthy and one-time occurrences but volunteers have the opportunity to pick a day to lessen the load. Other opportunities at the museum, such as tours, are usually shorter and occur more frequently. 

We have something for everybody! Please look through our tables of volunteer events and opportunities to decide what is best for you. 


Please fill out our form if you would like to become a student volunteer!
