02. Become a Volunteer

Do you love the outdoors? Are you interested in hiking, birds, butterflies, salamanders, rocks, fishing, cultural history or any other subject of natural history? Do you have something to give back to the community? Do you want to help raise our community out of economic disparity by educating our youth with outdoor engagement?

Volunteer for Blue Ridge Discovery Center and help us extend our mission throughout the region. Volunteers are by far the biggest asset of Blue Ridge Discovery Center. You build and enrich our programs, keep our administration in line and ensure our events are a success.

BRDC is a the right place to dedicate your efforts in serving the community. By joining the team you will be part of a community that is close knit and active throughout the year, engaging in the treasures of the Blue Ridge far and wide. 

Become a program leader by working with us to develop activities that align our mission with your interests and knowledge.

We are looking for:

  • Program Leaders
  • Guides
  • Field Assistants
  • Administrative assistants
  • Event Staff

Who might be interested:

  • Community Members who want to see the kind of services 
  • Scientists - retired 
  • Teachers
  • Professors
  • Youth active in community service
  • Financial Donors who want to be active on the ground

Our volunteer coordinator will be in touch shortly to discuss ways in which you can help us help the community.
