Volunteer Opportunities

The Long Island Explorium is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and could not operate without the contributions of our volunteers who contribute their time, ideas, and energy. Their unique talents enable the Explorium to offer its current level of services to the community.

All of us at the Long Island Explorium are committed to provide an enriched experience for children and their parents through a hands-on challenge based approach to learning. We strive to provide an engaging experience that can only be achieved by the combined efforts of a dedicated skilled team of employees and volunteers. The volunteer program is flexible, matching available opportunities to your talent and availability.

Virtual Volunteer Opportunities during CoVID 19.

Are you looking for meaningful virtual volunteer opportunities that can earn you community service hours? Volunteer opportunities that would help develop your interpersonal and organizational skills, strengthen your expertise in STEM and position yourself as a well-rounded student?  The Explorium is looking for energetic, mature and passionate virtual volunteers in the following areas - 
  1. Journalists of the future - you are passionate about STEM, gender equity, social justice, climate science and the environment. We are looking for individuals who LOVE to write, especially for an online and web audience. 
  2. Social media copy writers - you have a knack for delivering strong messages using very few words. You thrive on grabbing the reader's attention and driving them to action.

If you have prior experience in these areas, we would love to hear from you. If you don't but want to get your feet wet, do drop us a line. Send an email to: a.judex@longislandexplorium.org
