Call for Publicity Officers

Update – the application will be available until this Sunday, June 28th. We will start the interview process after that. If you are interested to apply in the future, look out for our next call for volunteers starting this fall.

USAAAO is looking for Publicity Officers to help us expand our outreach.

The publicity officer (as all other positions at USAAAO) is a volunteer position. You would be working alongside the other enthusiastic volunteers at USAAAO.


We are trying to significantly expand the number of students who are aware of the existence of our program, with a particular emphasis on reaching out to students of underrepresented groups.
To accomplish this, you would help aggregate contact information for high schools across the nation, and, if interested, help manage the social media platforms of the organization, as well as other strategies you are welcome to propose.


We are purposely keeping the qualifications list to a minimum, and encourage basically all interested to apply.
The main attribute would be the ability to follow directions and respect deadlines.

You also have to be above the age of 13.


Through this work you will be having a direct impact in helping students get access to astronomy and astrophysics education.

You will also gain experience working as part of a team, but also a self-driven individual accomplishing your own project goals.


The position is available immediately. Expected time commitment per week is 3-5h, but more interest is always welcomed as well.

If you are interested in applying for this position, please fill the following form:

By submitting this form you confirm you are above the age of 13.

If selected, you will hear back from us with further information.

If you have any questions about this or other volunteer positions, do not hesitate to email us at!
