Foundation Volunteer Application
Griffith Observatory Foundation is the exclusive non-profit partner of Griffith Observatory. Foundation volunteers are critical to the success of our mission to fundraise and advocate on behalf of this inspiring institution.

We welcome and encourage individuals of all backgrounds and abilities to apply. We select our volunteers based on the following criteria: 1) an applicant's commitment, dependability, and desire to be of service, and 2) the needs of the organization.

All volunteers will be registered with the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks. Volunteers must be fingerprinted and cleared by the City prior to beginning any volunteer work.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. Foundation volunteer tasks do NOT involve any kind of interpretive work of the museum exhibits or astronomy; the Observatory has Guide staff and telescope demonstrators to fulfill this need. If that work is of interest to you, please check current Observatory employment opportunities here:
