Join us in inspiring future generations of innovators and explorers!
Volunteers are very special people and assist the Orlando Science Center in its mission to inspire science learning for life. Our volunteers touch the lives of children and families in a positive way by giving of their personal time.
As the “face of the Science Center” volunteers help guide, teach and enlighten museum guests. Our volunteers range in age from 13 to 90 and bring with them life experience and their enthusiasm to volunteer for the community.
We are looking for energetic, dedicated, exciting individuals who have a passion for science and technology to help bring the Science Center’s exhibits to life by greeting visitors or assisting with administrative projects. Both morning and afternoon shifts are available Monday through Sunday
In return for a generous donation of your time, the Orlando Science Center gives back!
- Complimentary Tickets to the Orlando Science Center
- Discounts in the Science Store and Subway™
- Free family membership after 100 hours of service
Once your application has been received you will be contacted by the Volunteer Manager to schedule a meeting to discuss the Orlando Science Center’s volunteer program and current opportunities that align with your hobbies, interests and skills.
Check out our Frequently Asked Questions to learn more about volunteering at the Orlando Science Center. Please remember that not all applicants are accepted into the program as volunteers are selected based on the needs of the organization. Each volunteer’s interests and availability is considered when placing a volunteer; however, Orlando Science Center reserves the right to place volunteers in the area that is best suited for a volunteer’s current skill level and the needs of the museum.
A one-day orientation and training is mandatory for all volunteers to attend.
