At CuriOdyssey, we recognize that volunteers are critical to our success.
Each year, more than 150 individuals ages 13 to 90 support CuriOdyssey by volunteering. There are volunteer opportunities in many areas, including: roving wildlife interpretative guides, exhibit facilitators, summer camp volunteers, and Wildlife Department assistants.
Volunteers receive many special privileges including educational opportunities, social events with other volunteers, a newsletter specifically written for volunteers, discounted family membership rate, and the knowledge that the community benefits from each volunteer’s time.
Our goal is to provide enjoyable and rewarding experiences for all our dedicated volunteers. Every volunteer receives position-appropriate training and in most cases, is asked to make a significant commitment of time. Please see descriptions below for specific responsibilities, application periods and age requirements. If you complete our online application, you will be contacted with more information on positions which fit your stated interests, age range, and availability.
For other volunteer inquiries, contact our Volunteer Manager Lee Cauble at lcauble(at)curiodyssey.org or 650-340-7580.
