Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The Tech Museum of Innovation Needs Volunteers Like You! (San Jose downtown) Do you have a desire to learn and teach others about science and technology? If so, then The Tech might be the perfect place for you to volunteer. The Tech Museum of Innovation is no ordinary museum, and our volunteers are not ordinary museum docents. The Tech serves a diverse population, including international visitors, local families, and school groups. We often have over 1,000 students visiting the museum for field trips on a given day. Volunteers have the opportunity to staff exhibits and interact with museum visitors. A typical day could include helping guests experience the power of major world earthquakes, leading kids in simple hands-on science projects, or letting visitors feel what maneuvering in space is like in the "Jet Pack" simulation.
You don't have to be a teacher or an engineer to succeed as a volunteer. We provide hands-on training and mentorship to ensure your success. If you are 18 or older, enjoy talking and working with people, we know you'll enjoy joining our close-knit community of Silicon Valley supporters.
If you are trying to volunteer around a busy schedule, we have the perfect fit for you. We are looking for volunteers to come in for evening events. You just have to volunteer for at least two-evening events per month.
We also have regular (weekly or biweekly) shifts, from 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. or 12:30 - 5:00 p.m. on Monday through Friday.
