Help Solana Center run our store and deliver our great programs to the public!

- Must be okay with standing for prolonged periods of time
- Comfortable talking with the public and assuming a customer service approach
- Ability to think on your feet, troubleshoot unique problems, and communicate with staff and visitors clearly
