AFA Members: Want to make a difference in lives while giving back to the community? Here’s an opportunity.
The Space Foundation has meaningful and rewarding volunteer opportunities at the Space Foundation Discovery Center in Colorado Springs. The Center is the region’s first and only space, science and technology attraction. It is an interactive Discovery Center comprised of the El Pomar Space Gallery (home to a collection of space artifacts and displays), the Northrop Grumman Science Center featuring Science On a Sphere®, the AGI Space Missions Simulation Laboratory, the Mars Robotics Laboratory, and the Lockheed Martin Space Education Center. Volunteers receive in-depth training about the area they support. Throughout the year, the Discovery Center is open to the public, and features a special event during the summer months, highlighting a variety of special themes and special guests. Volunteers provide hands-on activities for kids of all ages, including arts and crafts, glove boxes, stomp rockets and our bounce house. To learn more about the Discovery Center, visit www.SpaceFoundation.org/museum. All kinds of year-around support is needed, from administration and model repairing to docents.
