People Driven Organization

Everyone at Wood Buffalo Youth Science Foundation is a volunteer. They donate their time and energy to create meaningful opportunities for youth to engage in Project-Based Scientific Work. Everyone from the Board of Directors, Judges, and Exhibit Hall Volunteers are all working toward the same means – to make sure our participants have a safe and happy time at the fair. This is where we need you! Each year we recruit a host of volunteers. We have much work to do and not enough hands to do it all. While we always welcome judges, we also are always needing and greatly cherish our Exhibit Hall Volunteers.
