The Application Process

The application process for Galaxy Explorer high school volunteer for summer 2019 is no longer accepting responses. Please check back in August when we will reopen the window and begin accepting applications for our Fall volunteer intake.

Introductory, Customer Service, & Safety Training

All new volunteers are required to attend the initial training prior to working in the Center (no exceptions). It’s our way of getting your feet wet. You will be introduced to the history of Chabot, safety procedures, customer service skills, the ins-and-outs of the program, and meet program staff and experienced volunteers.

If accepted you will receive an electronic invitation to start the mandatory training program.
