The Lawrence Hall of Science has a fun and dynamic program for teens. All teens who wish to participate are required to apply to the program in February, and then to volunteer in various roles at the Hall during the summer. Teens get to assist in our Ingenuity Space or facilitate experiences both on the floor and at special events. Volunteering at the Hall not only is a great way to fulfill community service requirements, but it also provides teens with the opportunity to develop job skills.
Such skills include public speaking and customer service, self-confidence and leadership, adaptability and flexibility to manage multiple assignments under changing conditions, learning ways to communicate science to the public, building interpersonal relationships, and the ability to plan, organize, and prioritize work. At the Hall, volunteers find a safe way and place to socialize with other youth, while they enjoy the benefits of experiencing a work-related environment with Hall staff, UC Berkeley college students, and other teens from all around the Bay Area.
