Volunteer at the RAO

How to become a volunteer

The Rothney Astrophysical Observatory relies on volunteers to host our many programs and assist with the operations of the observatory. Volunteers provide energy, knowledge and ambience to our events. The RAO is committed to providing meaningful, enjoyable and safe volunteer assignments of real value within clear and appropriate programs and activities. The university recognizes that volunteer contributions enhance programs and activities and, as an organization, we believe that volunteers are vital to the work we do.
