Global Volunteer Network

Welcome to the Planetary Society’s Global Volunteer Network!

I’m Tom Kemp, the Global Volunteer Coordinator, and a volunteer myself. I first met other volunteers at Planetfest, a large Planetary Society event celebrating a mission to Mars. I joined the local Pasadena volunteer group to help out with tasks at headquarters – rolling posters, stuffing envelopes, and talking about space exploration with people who shared my interests. Now, I’m thrilled to help people around the world become part of our community and urge you to join us as a Planetary Society volunteer.

The Global Volunteer Network is one of the cornerstones of the Planetary Society. Volunteers have turned their talents to a wide variety of projects, including:

  • building scale models of the Lightsail
  • creating animation for the website
  • archiving the history of the organization.

In addition, Volunteers organize events, introduce students to planetary exploration, and inform their local communities about the latest Planetary Society projects and programs. As a volunteer, you can help the Planetary Society continue to grow.

The rapid expansion of the Internet and web-based communities now offers a wide range of additional ways in which you can share your passion about space and introduce people around the world to the Planetary Society and its goals.

You can take an active role with the Planetary Society by joining our Global Volunteer Network. Just send me your name and email address, and I’ll get you started. Please contact me at In several locations around the world, we also have Regional Coordinators planning local activities. Check our Regional Volunteer page to see if there is one near you.

Let me know how I can help you and how you would like to help us.
