Volunteer Registration

The Space Symposium Volunteer Registration Portal is now open! There, you’ll find the different volunteer opportunities available for the 35th Space Symposium. Please be sure to review the descriptions to ensure you are able to perform the duties.

After you submit your application, you will receive an automated email from the Space Foundation Volunteer Manager, Jennifer Walters, who will be scheduling shifts for the Space Symposium. Once your shifts are scheduled, you will receive a confirmation email, and at that time you will be asked to confirm your shifts. Periodically, before and up to the Space Symposium opening, Jennifer Walters will send emails detailing all that you will need to know to volunteer.
