At the Greensboro Science Center, we are honored to welcome approximately 750 volunteers each year, giving a cumulative 36,000+ hours of their time. With a friendly greeting and a warm smile, our volunteers help us carry out our mission each day, educating our visitors about our animals and exhibits and inspiring them to learn more.
Today we would like to introduce you to Jisoo K.
I have been volunteering since October of 2014, and because I currently attend high school, I volunteer mostly on Saturdays. I try to volunteer in the Aquarium at least one time every week. I started to volunteer because I wanted to have the opportunity to interact with many different types of people, which I knew I would have the opportunity to do at the GSC. In addition, when it comes to anything related to science, I am infinitely curious, always seeking to learn more about anything that I can. The Greensboro Science Center, with the museum, the zoo, and the Aquarium gives me the chance to explore my curiosities.
One of my favorite things about volunteering at the Greensboro Science Center is answering questions. I try to answer any questions that I am asked thoroughly and in an interesting way. I also love staying near the fishing cats and talking about them during my time volunteering in the aquarium. I love volunteering, and hope that I continue to have many rewarding experiences through volunteering in the future.
