NASA's Solar System Ambassadors program is looking for volunteer space enthusiasts to join us in sharing the wonders of space exploration with the public.
Ambassadors come from all 50 states, plus Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. The program is one of the longest-running NASA volunteer outreach projects. It includes volunteers from various career fields and occupations, including teachers, computer software writers, students, firefighters and soldiers.
Each ambassador receives online training from JPL, and educational materials supplied by various space missions, such as Dawn, which is poised to become the first spacecraft to orbit two different celestial bodies after leaving Earth. Dawn is scheduled to launch later this month.
