We rely on our volunteers to educate students from the High Desert and beyond in a fun way through our hands-on field trip programs. It is a rewarding experience for the students as well as the volunteers.

Volunteers are trained for their assignments; so no experience is necessary to become a Lewis Center volunteer. Enthusiasm is all you need to start! By becoming a LCER volunteer, you have the opportunity to learn new things yourself as you have fun with students.

To become a volunteer, simply fill out a volunteer interest form at the link below and you will be contacted.   You must become an LCER approved volunteer.  Requirements include DOJ background clearance, TB risk assessment questionnaire and attending a volunteer workshop.  You can begin your adventure by calling us today. See below for more details.

Volunteers at the Lewis Center share their time and talents in a variety of ways. Here are some of the ways they donate their time:


  • Present educational programs at the Lewis Center campuses.
  • Present programs/workshops at community school classrooms
  • Maintain program supplies & materials
  • Assist in the development of new programs
  • Assist with special events at the Lewis Center
  • Host star parties at our Luz Observatory
