3RF relies on the good work of many volunteers. Without their devoted support, our outreach efforts—particularly at school and public astronomy events—would be greatly reduced.

To qualify as a 3RF Volunteer:

  • Participate in at least THREE 3RF events prior to official designation as 3RF Volunteer

  • Participate in a 1-hour Orientation Training

  • Be able to demonstrate general knowledge in your field of volunteer work AND to present such knowledge to public in a polite, simple, and helpful manner

  • Astronomy volunteers should develop proficiency with one or more of our telescope/binocular systems

  • Participate in ONE 3RF outreach event per year

  • Assist with equipment set up prior to an event, and equipment disassembly afterward

  • Demonstrate the highest regard and safety for 3RF visitors, equipment, and facilities



  • Once selected as a 3RF VOLUNTEER, overnight accommodations and dinner on the day of the event will be provided

  • Once selected as a 3RF VOLUNTEER, a logo shirt will be provided to be worn at any 3RF activity

  • Volunteers may use 3RF equipment for their own purposes after a public event ends
