Outreach Volunteers

Student, community and alumni volunteers are actively engaged in carrying out Swenson College's mission. Volunteers engage and educate young students eager to learn about science and engineering fields. 

Sign up for a STEM Kit delivery at local schools spot! (see also, online Volunteer Training below)

We're always looking for individuals interested in volunteering. Activities range from presentations, administering activities or demonstrations, assisting with tours or events, serving as a science fair judge and/or acting as a peer mentor for young students. There are opportunities to volunteer for as little as a one hour session or as often as once a week. Opportunities to help are also available for several of our one-day events such as Science and Engineering Day or Astronomy Day.

Think of the resume building possibilities!

Volunteer Training

You can now perform most of your volunteer orientation and training online. Use the step-by-step instructions below for completing the online portion of your training.  You may still be required to attend a hands-on training at the Outreach office or other location, depending on the type of outreach activity you have selected.  For example, participating in outreach events involving the use of a specific STEM lesson kit, will require that you attend a 45-minute hands-on training so you are familiar with how to lead a lesson and demonstrate the kit activity.
