Youth volunteer opportunities are limited to specific programs at specific times of the year.

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, by phone 410-779-1627 or email email@example.com to receive a Youth Volunteer Application.
All youth volunteers must:
- Work well with children and teenagers
- Possess excellent communication skills
- Have the ability to follow directions
- Be comfortable interacting with the public
- Be adaptable to changing situations
- Work well independently and in a team atmosphere
We are currently recruiting for MSC’s annual Camp-In! Camp-In volunteers serve as assistants during the Maryland Science Center’s overnight Camp-In program. Volunteers do not stay overnight; they complete their sessions on Friday or Saturday evenings between 5:00pm and 11:00pm. Volunteers help with check-in, organizing take-home bags, snack and science-based workshop activities. Volunteers earn up to 6 hours of service credit for each event. We ask that volunteers commit to at least 4 evenings, though more shifts are available. The Camp-In Program runs late January 2022 through early May 2022.
Group Volunteer Opportunities
The Maryland Science Center welcomes groups of volunteers for a day of service! Tasks can be indoors or outdoors, working with our Exhibits, Operations, or Education departments. Please note that project availability may vary; please contact us as soon as early as possible to discuss options.
Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.
