Volunteers will deliver hands-on science outreach activities to youth. Participating students will receive Let’s Talk Science training on science communication and outreach policies, and gain access to other PD offerings. Upon completion of the mandatory basic training, volunteers can access volunteer opportunities at their convenience throughout the year, including EDIA initiatives.
- Volunteers will sign up on our online volunteer portal and participate in Volunteer Basic Training prior to any volunteer opportunities.
- Police Information Checks including Vulnerable Sector Searches are required for some volunteer opportunities.
- Current Let’s Talk Science policy requires all volunteers participating in in-person activities to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 according to their local health authority’s recommendations.
Local opportunities are at any formal and informal educator centres in Calgary including schools, museums, and libraries.
Arrangements can be made with remote students to engage schools and organizations within their local community anywhere within Canada.
“I think this virtual outreach has given me a great starting opportunity to develop my public speaking and presentation skills. With each event I do, I feel more and more confident about my ability to communicate and be a good role model in STEM! “
