ORGANIZATION: formerly Challenger Space Center - NOW The Earth and Space Expedition Center

  • 22 people are interested

(Formerly The Challenger Space Center), The Earth and Space Expedition Center is a non-profit, uniquely designed Earth and Space museum, and is looking to expand their group of committed volunteers!

Tour guides would be responsible for providing a welcome, hospitable environment and a rewarding learning experience to museum visitors through guided tours.

We do not require any special background or knowledge, as training is provided by our staff. We are looking for individuals that want to share their love of science, space and the importance of education with their community.

We ask volunteers to commit to at least two time slots each month, preferably three to four time slots each month. We currently offer AM shift (10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.) or PM shift (12:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.). The times may vary slightly depending on daily occurrences. We are currently open on Saturdays only, but we are planning expand these days to Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays each week.

You will have the unique opportunity to learn about and share with others topics such as space exploration history, deep space, astronomy, the solar system, meteors, global weather patterns, the International Space Station, and the Space Shuttle Program. You will also have the opportunity to research more and share your knowledge with staff for possible inclusion in future programs.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
