Why Volunteer?

Let's Talk Science volunteers are role models for youth in Canada. As a volunteer, you will meet like-minded people, make a difference in your community, be eligible for prestigious awards and rekindle your love of science.

We set you up for success by providing training, activity kits, funding and materials. Your volunteer coordinator will support your efforts and provide you with volunteer opportunities.
