Calling all science enthusiasts! The World Science Festival is back!

About WSF:

The World Science Festival gathers great minds in science and the arts to produce live and digital content that allows a broad general audience to engage with scientific discoveries. Through discussions, debates, theatrical works, interactive explorations, musical performances, intimate salons, and major outdoor experiences, the Festival takes science out of the laboratory and into the streets, parks, museums, galleries and premier performing arts venues of New York City and beyond.

The annual live, week-long New York Festival, which launched in 2008, has collectively drawn more than a million and a half visitors, with millions more viewing the programs online.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the World Science Festival, serving as our ambassadors to the public and participants alike. They are a welcoming face to visitors, chock-full of information about the Festival and its programs. Volunteers also support the many production teams that make so many compelling programs and experiences possible.

  • Possess excellent communication skills.
