Volunteers

The College of Sciences and Mathematics at Auburn University aims to promote scientific literacy and interest among K-12 students, teachers, and communities in our region, our state, and our nation. The COSAM Outreach office helps the college meet this mission by encouraging interest in the sciences among K-12 students through relevant and inspiring math and science experiences. We do this through various programming. Many of these programs allow K-12 students access to exciting hands-on experiences in science, enthusiastic science mentors, and exposure to faculty, undergraduate and graduate students in the sciences. For this reason, we are often looking for quality COSAM volunteers.

2021-2022 Undergraduate Student Volunteer Opportunities

If you are looking for an opportunity to interact with kids who love science and math as much as you do we have many opportunities for COSAM students to volunteer. For questions about any of these undergraduate volunteer opportunities please contact Cara Brittan, cnw0012@auburn.edu.
