As a non-profit charitable organization, Science World's volunteers are integral to our story and have been since day one.

We were founded by a group of dedicated community members who believed that fun and relevant science-learning experiences are important to the growth of our city and province. Today, our volunteers help us toward a bright tomorrow. They ignite wonder and empower dreams in every region of BC.

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities for teens, adults, professional scientists and curious community members!

Volunteer Opportunities

Core Volunteer Program

Volunteers in our core volunteer program have diverse backgrounds, ages and interests. They receive a wide array of benefits, including rewarding training and meaningful responsibilities, lounge privileges, inclusion in staff events, restaurant and store discounts, a recognition program and educational and learning opportunities. 

What you need to know

  • You must be at least 16 years old.
  • You must commit to a minimum of 100 hours of volunteer service.
  • We will ask you to volunteer for a 2–4 hour shift once per week.
  • There are 2 intake and training sessions each year—Spring and Fall. There also may be the possibility of specific recruitment for volunteers, as required.

We have made the decision to postpone our Spring Intake for volunteers.
