Volunteer for the Greater Good!

Volunteers play an essential role at the Greater Good Science Center, pitching in with everything from publicity to event staffing to editorial assistance.

We are looking for smart, passionate volunteers who want to contribute to the greater good by providing research and editorial assistance for Greater Good articles and Raising Happiness posts; helping us use social media and other tools to spread the word about our work; maintaining our website; producing regular reports on our web traffic and other key metrics; fundraising; and producing our e-newsletter and other multimedia content.

If you would like to volunteer with us, please download this application, fill it out, then save and send it to us through the form below. When you save your application, please include your last name in the file name. And you should definitely meet our current volunteers and research assistants.
