round of training for CSSC volunteers is scheduled for September
27 and October 4 6:30-9:30 each night or all day 9-5 Saturday,
October 7. Please call Marcia Hale, Chabot Volunteer Coordinator,
at (510) 336-7376, or contact MHale@ChabotSpace.org, to take
your place with others interested in helping make our visitors'
experience at Chabot an informative and pleasant one.
At this time, the need is great for more knowledgeable people
to explain the historic telescopes to our visitors in the daytime,
as well as at night. Most people will explore the Science Center
during the day, and it's great to be able to show them what they
can enjoy when they return for a night under the stars.
This volunteer class will specialize in positions for Observatory
Deck Crew. These valued aides will help the public understand
our telescopes by providing information during day-time visits
and by assisting with viewing of night sky wonders. To qualify,
you must be comfortable working outdoors, able to navigate well
in low light conditions, and must have a keen sense of safety
and customer service for the visiting public.
Other volunteer positions are available, including weekday Mission
Specialists at the Challenger Learning Center®. Other tasks
in the expanded youth volunteer program are suitable for teens
in grades 812.
Whatever your skill and interest, there's a place for you on
our Team! Call (510) 336-7376.
