The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Child (age 10 and up) and Parent (or grandparent or guardian) volunteer as hosts in the Nature Center. Spend quality time with your child (or grandchild!) and help young person develop confidence, social skills, and a volunteer ethic while you learn and have fun participating in this award winning program! Get training as naturalist interpreters and help greet the public, answer questions, care for exhibit specimens, and learn about nature.
Volunteer at least 1 shift per month: Tuesday-Friday afternoon shifts 1150am-4:30pm; weekend shifts 9:20am-1pm and 1-4:30pm. We ask a 1 year commitment to make the training investment worth it. We can do a meet and greet without commitment to help see if this is the right volunteer opportunity for you!
Lots of initial and ongoing on-the-job training provided to get new volunteers started anytime during the year. Once we are notified of your interest, we will contact you provide a bit more info and to schedule an initial meet and greet visit with staff - thanks!
