Volunteer for the Greater Good!

Volunteers play a vital role in many of the Greater Good Science Center's programs.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with GGSC events, which involves everything from marketing to setting up at our venues. If you would like to volunteer at an upcoming GGSC event, please email our director of operations, Hong Nguyen, at htcnguyen at berkeley dot edu.

Please write "GGSC Event Volunteer" in the subject line and briefly describe your interest in the GGSC's work, your availability, and any relevant experience. Resumes are optional. GGSC event volunteers must be based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
