We are a volunteer-powered organization. This means that your skills fuel our operations, activities and projects.

We trust that all volunteers believe in our mission, are willing to commit to the cause and add value to the organization.

The extent to which you engage is up to you. Whether you have a few hours each week, a few days each year or are able to devote considerably more time (20 hours a week), we can use your help. Most tasks can be carried out over the phone, web communication and email.

A (definitely) non-exhaustive list of possible tasks includes:

  • Be an event representative
  • Sharing interesting and relevant news on our social media platforms
  • Writing an article for our blog or newsletter
  • Joining the Fundraising efforts (working on sponsorships, donations, grants)
  • Joining the Marketing team (graphic design, social media, communication)
  • Sharing your ideas of potential projects
  • Joining a specific project
  • Giving legal advice
  • Giving expert opinion on chemistry matters
  • Starting your own project
