Discovery College – The Best Volunteer Opportunity in the Greater Lake Houston Area

Discovery College – The Best Volunteer Opportunity in the Greater Lake Houston AreaIf you’re 16 years-of-age or older, you’re invited to apply and join the Lone Star College-Discovery College team as a summer volunteer. At Discovery College, volunteers work with students, providing the close supervision and assistance to the director, instructors and campus.

Everyone at Lone Star College has an understanding and appreciation for the impact volunteers make. The goal is to match volunteer expectations with what is best for students.

If you enjoy helping students between the ages of 6 to 14 in various programs such as: Fractals, Duct Tape Design, Old School Games, Sports Camp, Rubber Band Creations, Cupcake Creations, Lemonade Mogul, Geotech Adventures, Robotics, Junior Veterinarians, and many more Lone Star College wants to hear from you!

Volunteering builds character, empathy and selflessness, especially in children and teens. For teenagers, volunteering can fulfill community service requirements or give them a competitive advantage in college scholarship opportunities.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years-of-age, attend an orientation session and complete a background check.

LSC-Kingwood has been offering fun and educational programs in our community for more than 25 years.  The college recently expanded to the LSC-Atascocita Center and will be offering classes during the month of July.  The summer program runs from June until August.  Volunteer positions are filled on a first come first serve basis so it is important to submit your application as soon as possible. Discovery College hours are Monday to Thursday from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.  As a volunteer you will be able to choose which sessions and times work best for you.
