If you love learning and teaching others about Space and Space Science, have a passion for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics you can be a part of our volunteer program. The CMSC is the National Memorial to the Space Shuttle Columbia and is dedicated to preserving the history of the birth place of the Apollo Capsules and Space Shuttle Orbiters by inspiring people of all ages to learn through interactive exhibits. As a volunteer you would assist in classes, field trips, camps, special events and in the daily interaction with patrons visiting the center from the community.
The Space Center is always looking for new friendly faces and helpful hands to keep things running smoothly during operation hours. Our volunteers benefit from :
- Receive community service hours
- Gain problem solving skills
- Participation in special events
- Improving communication skills
- Opportunities to learn and educate
- Contribute in common goals of teaching young people about careers in space exploration and aviation
We welcome volunteers 14 years old and older.
