Volunteers

Join Yerkes/SLF Volunteers Today!

We can’t survive without the help of volunteers! The StarLight Festival is very fortunate to have dedicated volunteers to help us operate. Be a part of our team as one of the largest AstroSTEM events in the country! SLF requires about a hundred volunteers to make things happen. 

How Can I Help as a Yerkes/SLF Volunteer?

Click on the position title, to send an e-mail to the coordinator. Your assignment is not automatic. You will hear from the coordinator first.
(Note that positions without links are presently filled.)

When you contact us, be sure to let us know whether you are interested in helping just this year, or if you’d like to join our staff permanently!

Some positions may qualify you for early-arrival on the Saturday before StarLight Festival starts! You will be approved for early-arrival only if your request is accepted by the coordinator.
