Volunteer Opportunities

The STEM Center would like to invite community member volunteers to join our department. We believe you would enrich our students’ college experience by providing perspective on where you are now, the life you have had, and the community in which you live. Volunteer times are flexible, but would be between the hours of 8am and 4pm Monday – Thursday, when classes are in session.

More Tutoring at BBCC

The STEM Center offers drop-in tutoring and SI (group study sessions), but does not offer one-on-one tutoring. One-on-one peer tutoring is organized by the Library. If you’re interested in one-on-one tutoring, please contact our eLearning Coordinator, Mattias Olshausen.
