A list of candidates will be chosen from the completed applications for an interview in April with all decisions made by mid-April. We usually have about 75 spots available so unfortunately, not every applicant will be chosen. All volunteers accepted into the program must attend orientation.
Please complete the form below. Unless you are a returning volunteer, you must also have two Teacher/Mentor Recommendations submitted on your behalf in order for your application to be considered. All materials must be submitted by midnight on April 16, 2018.
If you have already applied for Summer 2018, here are the next steps:
Youth volunteers age 13-17 work with our Summer Camps, supporting the informal science education led by paid staff. They prepare the classroom for the day, help the Educator and Assistant with classroom management and work directly with the kids on a wide variety of experiments, projects and activities. Volunteers help provide a fun and safe environment while assisting campers in their exploration of science!
Camps run June 11 — August 24 at the Museum in Durham. We will also offer camp at the Montessori Community School of Chapel Hill June 11 — August 3. Volunteers must work 8:30am — 3:30pm, although they may arrive by 8am and stay as late as 5:30pm.
