What can you do as a volunteer at Lowell? Just about anything.
Join our outreach program and welcome guests at the Steele Visitor Center, helping them learn about activities at Lowell or showing kids how much they’d weigh on Pluto (not much) or Jupiter (ooof!). Or come in the evenings and operate one of the telescopes; evening viewing is our marquee activity and volunteers make a big difference in making it a memorable experience.
Our volunteers assist us in many other ways as well. They’ve helped with our library, archives, information technology systems, and collections. They help staff our reception desk and answer incoming telephone queries. And they’ve helped us with grant writing and program planning.
As a complex, nonprofit organization deeply involved in pure research, instrumentation, and outreach, we offer diverse opportunities for volunteers to become part of our team.
