Frequently Asked Questions
What is the time commitment required to volunteer?
We offer a wide variety of opportunities for volunteers: ongoing, occasional, or one-time. Although our need for volunteers is greatest during the weekdays, there may also be evening and weekend opportunities available. Many of our volunteers work full-time jobs and have a multitude of commitments during the week. Some find time to help before work or during a lunch break! Spending time working with bright young minds in the classroom can provide a welcome and rewarding break from the office. Take a look at our opportunities on the form below to determine which ones best fit your schedule.
Do I need to be a STEM professional or student to volunteer?
Not at all! While STEM professionals are invaluable as they bring their real-world experiences into the classroom, we offer many meaningful volunteer opportunities for both STEM and non-STEM professionals. These include: serving as mentors, general administration, student tracking and communications, and much more.
Can I volunteer safely during COVID-19?
Yes, in Spring 2020, we pivoted to accommodate virtual, remote-based learning. When in-person programming or coordination can take place, we will always follow all health and safety guidelines. Some of the current volunteerism with LETS GO involves acting as a virtual guest speaker and assisting in STEM kit preparation and delivery, among other opportunities.
Where can I volunteer?
LETS GO currently accepts volunteers who can serve (virtually or in-person) our partners in Baltimore City, Washington, DC, and Anne Arundel County.
What can I expect when I volunteer?
Volunteering with LETS GO is incredibly rewarding. Because our activities are hands-on, you will experience a high level of engagement as you observe students explore their STEM interest and identity. All volunteers are onboarded and trained as necessary, depending on the complexity of the position.
