As a non-profit organization, Discovery Science Foundation relies on volunteer support to inspire future scientists and engineers. Volunteers provide person-to-person interaction with our guests in order to promote education through our exhibits. If you are over the age of 15 and would like to make an impact on your community, you have found the right place to volunteer!
The Cube has a strong and active group of teen volunteers who donate the majority of their time to us on weekends, the holidays, and in the summer. We are looking for volunteers who are outgoing, passionate, and enjoy working with the public. Teens are welcome to serve in the same positions as adults and do not need previous volunteer experience.
Discovery Cube is looking to grow our adult volunteer base. We need volunteers who are able to donate their time during the week as we see over 70,000 students a year on field trips. Tabletop and exhibit presentations run by volunteers make a huge difference in their experience and create a positive lasting impression. A teaching background is not required. We are simply looking for people who are outgoing and passionate about giving back to their community.
Discovery Cube offers group volunteer opportunities to high school, college, and corporate groups at our special events. To learn more about upcoming opportunities, contact the Volunteer Department at 818-686-2835 or volunteerLA@discoverycube.org. Please provide us with group leader information (name, phone number, e-mail, school and club name) and you’ll be asked to confirm the number of volunteers in your group two weeks before the event date.
Who Can Apply to Become a Volunteer?
All volunteers have to be at least 15 years of age. However, you may begin the application process one month before your 15th birthday. All applicants 18 and over will have to submit to a background check. Unfortunately, we cannot accept volunteers who are serving community service hours due to a crime or diversion program.
