WAYS TO VOLUNTEER
Volunteering at Spark Central is a great way serve the community. As a station (center) volunteer, you commit to be available at the Spark Central for three hours once a week —any shift you choose. You’ll welcome people who come in, learn how to run the center, be a living resource for those seeking help with a project, or share with those who just want to chat about who you are and what you know. It's a great way to help others, connect with like-minded people, and hang out in a space where exciting connections will be happening all the time.
Substitute STATION Volunteers
Can't commit to being a station volunteer? Become a substitute and help cover center shifts when others can't make it. We'll add you to our list and call if there's an open center shift; you decide if you can come in or not. Please contact us if interested.
We're serious about play, and invite you to be part of the fun! Youth playshops for grades 1-12 have a distinct aesthetic: playful, hands-on, and creative. Youth workshops focus on playful themes that engage students with literacy. Help students explore their imaginations in Time Travel Lab, Origin Stories, Hour of Code, Girls' Rock Lab, and many more programs!
Community events are creative programs for the community, usually open to all age groups (no registration required). We always need help with set up, program support, and clean up. Plus you get to participate in amazing community events!
Provide other support
There are many ways to support and participate in the learning community at Spark Central. Help us with media projects, office work, IT support, outreach, hosting special events or other jobs that make Spark possible. Whatever your talents, whatever you time, we'll appreciate you and your generosity.
