Volunteering

By becoming a volunteer, you join a vibrant community of Astronomy enthusiasts working toward raising awareness of Astronomy and its merits on a nationwide scale. Examples of activities you could volunteer for include:

  • Liaising with and bringing together all other Astronomy groups in Singapore
  • Organizing events which promote awareness in all aspects of Astronomy
  • Developing and compiling resources for people new to Astronomy
  • Giving introductory talks to schools
  • Writing a monthly e-newsletter about local Astronomy events
  • Designing material to improve science literacy through Astronomy

Time commitment: There will be periods of higher and lower activity, and the decision to help with any particular activity is up to you. You could help out from as little as 2 hours a month on a school outreach observation session, to as much as 3-5 hours per week planning for and organizing new events.

Requirements: There are no age / qualification / knowledge requirements. All we ask for is your enthusiasm! However, if you are under 18 years old, should seek parental consent.

*Please note that only members are eligible to vote at Society executive meetings and run for Society executive committee. Volunteers who are not members will be invited to Society events but not Society executive meetings.

To become a volunteer, contact Wei Lin at weilin@astronomy.sg.
