Volunteering

AlvanDo you have an interest in astronomy, local history, or want to help a Cincinnati institution? The Cincinnati Observatory operates nearly every day with the assistance of our 60 active volunteers. If you are interested in working with the public and learning to use telescopes, we'd like you to join us.

Volunteers assist with our public programs on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Various jobs include:

  • Greeting visitors
  • Taking admissions
  • Helping in the gift shop
  • Helping in the dome
  • Pointing telescopes

No prior knowledge is necessary - a two hour training session is provided. We schedule volunteers to help one night per month and give you approximately 2 months notice on any assignments.

Volunteering at the Observatory is a great way to learn more about astronomy while helping us reach the public. Plus you will learn how to work the large, historic telescopes! If you have further questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, John Ventre at 513-321-5186 ext. 4 or email him at jeventre@ix.netcom.com
