Apply with our new online volunteer application!

Junior Volunteer Application (ages 12-17)

Our next volunteer orientation will be on September 7th 2019 @ 3:30 PM.

Want to share your love of science and nature at Riverside County’s largest natural history museum? Join us at the Western Science Center as a volunteer!

From working with fossils in our lab to sharing your knowledge with visitors out on the museum floor, we have opportunities available in almost every part of the museum. Volunteers log thousands of hours a year to help us further our mission to inspire our community to discover the past, explore the present, and promote a sustainable future.

All potential volunteers must complete a reference check, a criminal background check, and the museum’s volunteer training program before volunteering.
