Description:
The Lawrence Hall of Science has a fun and dynamic program for teens. All teens enter the program in May, volunteering on the exhibit floor for the summer. This is a great way for teens to fulfill community service requirements, get job skills, and learn about communicating science to the public. Volunteering here will give you skills in public speaking, education, customer service and general job skills to name a few. Volunteers will work with Hall staff, UC Berkeley college interns and other teens from all around the Bay Area.
