The purpose of the volunteer position is to help keep the resources of the Get Outside Center available to the general public. As a very small organization, we depend on volunteers to welcome visitors, engage them in exhibits, and care for our small collection of native wildlife.

Volunteers will open the center, provide an interactive drop in activity, and keep all our resources available, including the stream table, digital microscopes, osprey cam, activity board, and more. They check out books and gear to members and sell Tee shirts and memberships to guests.

Volunteers should be over 16 or come with an adult family member, and have a strong interest in science, natural history, or education, an excellent work ethic, be friendly and outgoing, and be able work work independently. They also must be able to get to the Get Outside Center, located in downtown Gloucester, independently.

Benefits

Training in natural history and educational theory. All volunteers and interns who commit to three months or more of service receive a free one year membership to Kestrel and a Kestrel Tee shirt.

Volunteers are provided with snacks during their shifts and provided they are reliable, will receive references for employers or colleges.
