Our mission here at ICR is to come alongside believers in their faith by providing scientific evidence that affirms the truth of God's word and glorifies Jesus Christ for His glorious work in Creation.

We believe volunteers play a vital role in this mission, and we don't take your investment lightly. When you serve with us, we commit to honor your time, provide appropriate training, arrange meaningful assignments, and cheer you on as you serve.

We're looking for volunteers who are passionate about God, His truth, and creation science.  Our main needs are currently in the ICR Discovery Center.  Click "Learn More" to fill out an application, or send an email to volunteer@icr.org for more information.  We look forward to hearing from you!
