Critter Camp at the Helen Woodward Animal Center

Spring Break  April 21-25 8am to 4pm

Event Description:

 

Thanks to Education Volunteers, the Helen Woodward Animal Center helps both people and animals by educating children about pet responsibility. The Junior Volunteer program is both fun and hard work. Volunteers must be mature, dependable, be able to follow directions, work independently, and display introductory leadership and teamwork skills. The most successful volunteers are committed, enthusiastic and experienced with children. Volunteers should have some previous experience working with children and a desire to work with Pre K – 5th grade.

Volunteer shifts are from 8:00-4:00, Monday – Friday and volunteers must be available from 8-4pm each day they volunteer. We cannot accommodate partial volunteer days. This is a smaller camp, therefore we have more flexibility with scheduling volunteer shifts. It would be great if you are available all five camp days. If that is not a possibility, any day(s) you are available is fine, for this camp only. (Summer camp requires a week-long commitment.)

*Applicants must be in 9th – 12th grade as of Fall of 2012. Applicants 18 or over will need to submit fingerprints prior to volunteering with children.*

It is important to understand that the volunteer’s job is working with children (not animals). Volunteers do prep work before and after class, clean up, assist with managing children's behavior, and supervise lunch & play time. Volunteers help the teacher with animal lessons, art, and games. Volunteers will be working around animals but not directly handling them

Our club meetings are an absolute blast and include hanging out, playing games, singing songs and studying the Word.

Anyone (high school and older) is welcome to come check it out hassle-free.  If they enjoy it and are interested in continuing to volunteer, they can commit to as much or as little as they want, from just being there when available as a buddy to committing as a leader and helping to facilitate club meetings.  We just need people who are willing to share God's love with an often overlooked population.

Reuben H. Fleet Science Center---Various Times

Event Description:

The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center is seeking high school volunteers for its many programs, especially as volunteer Museum Ambassadors and Origins of Life Technicians. We are asking high school teachers and advisors to bring our programs to the attention of your students and encourage them to consider volunteering their time and talents at the Fleet.
 
Volunteers gain new skills and experiences, meet interesting people from around the world, earn free admission to our galleries and theater shows, achieve personal and professional goals, and much more.
 
The Fleet Science Center seeks to inspire lifelong learning by furthering the public understanding and enjoyment of science and technology. Volunteers play an integral role in the operation of the Fleet and its programs. Opened in 1973 and located in Balboa Park (at the intersection of Park Blvd & Space Theater Way, two blocks south of the San Diego Zoo), the Fleet features seven exhibit galleries with more than 100 hands-on science exhibits, including major traveling exhibitions, and the world’s first—and Southern California’s only—IMAX® Dome Theater.
