North Bay Discovery Day - October 29, 2016
Join us in the fun! A day as a volunteer at the North Bay Science Discovery Day will be one you will never forget. The day is a spectacular splash of energy and excitement. Kids everywhere are happy and seriously engaged in activities that are intended to get them excited about STEM -- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
The volunteer opportunities are for that one day only. The Exhibitor Gates open around 7 a.m., and we exit the facility at 6 p.m. Visitors are here from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We have four large buildings as well as a large grass field with activities (exhibits) set up by companies, agencies, and schools. All exhibits are designed to be jaw-dropping experiences for kids.
Volunteers need to be super helpful and friendly to everyone. Our volunteers wear a white lab coat (provided by us for you to wear for the day), and the program says, "If you have a question, ask someone in a white lab coat." That means you need to be as informed as possible by reading the program, walking around the site, acquainting yourself with the exhibits, finding the bathroom locations, etc.
Volunteer jobs tend to be one of these (or more) job descriptions:
If you have the energy, of course, you can do more than one job! If you have questions about being a volunteer, or if you are ready to commit to being a volunteer, please contact Carole Bennett who will be organizing volunteer jobs, or use our online form.

Ceres Community Project
As a Ceres teen we invite you to step into an experience that revolves around learning, growing and giving back to your community. You'll have the opportunity to work at both our kitchen and our garden sites, and to meet teens from all over the County. Every week, you'll help grow vibrant and nutrient-rich produce, and prepare hundreds of beautiful, delicious, and nourishing meals for families in our community dealing with serious illness. With the guidance of adult mentor chefs and skilled gardeners, you'll learn to grow and prepare the vegetables, cook and package those meals.
Teens at Ceres are between the ages of 14 and 19. We ask for a three-month commitment from all teen volunteers, and we ask that you work at least a 2.5 to 3 hour shift each week.
If you are interested in becoming a Ceres teen, the first step is to come to a Volunteer Orientation on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 to 7:00 at our building. Once you have done that, we will schedule you for a regular shift as quickly as possible – usually within 3-4 weeks. Most new teens work alternating weeks in the kitchen and the garden. Teens do not usually work more than one day a week, and we accommodate a wide range of schedules.
