The Dartmoor Skies outreach team are a dedicated bunch of volunteers. They love the night sky and share their knowledge with the variety of people who join us at events. We’re always looking for new, enthusiastic people to join our team so please get in touch if you would like more information.

Volunteering opportunities

If you’re an astronomer and feel confident using a telescope or other stargazing equipment, you could help visitors to explore the night sky. We also need people with astronomy knowledge to prepare and give talks.

If you’re new to astronomy and love the idea of doing this but perhaps feel nervous about it, still get in touch. Everyone in the team is learning all the time. We want our volunteers to have the opportunity to develop their knowledge when working with us too.

There are other ways to support our events too. We sometimes need a small front of house team to welcome visitors, sell tickets, arrange refreshments, sell merchandise and collect feedback. Or perhaps you might like to help with our social media.
