Thank you to all who volunteer for ESfS!

Do you enjoy working with young members of the community? ESfS needs geoscience volunteers March 16-19, 2024 for the following tasks during the event:

    • Assemble packages for students attending the event
    • Assist with exhibit set up
    • Assist members of the public that are attending the exhibition
    • Guide youth groups through the exhibits
    • Guide grade school groups through the exhibits
    • Provide assistance at specific exhibits that require additional volunteers (e.g., Yukon Dan gold panning, fossil station, giant floor map)
    • Staff the information booth and provide volunteer backup

A majority of the volunteers will be needed for Monday March 18 and Tuesday March 19, 2024, as these are the days that visiting students and their teachers need to be guided around the exhibits. Please consider volunteering for this option. A typical shift consists of four hours on-site, but of course multiple shifts would be appreciated if you have time available.

Volunteers should be 18 years of age or older unless accompanied by an adult.

Sign up and volunteer shift selection for days-of-the-event opens October 1, 2023.

ESfS uses volunteer management software called Bloomerang (previously InitLive). You will be able to select your role(s) and shift(s) to create a personalized schedule.

If you have any questions or would like to add your name to our distribution list for ESfS 2024 or other geoscience outreach events, please contact the Volunteers committee at

The ESfS organizing committee is looking for organizing committee volunteers to deliver the program at our main event coming up in March 2024 and throughout the year at science fairs, Science Literacy Week, and Science Odyssey whenever possible.
