The Mars Society is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization dedicated to the exploration of the Red Planet. The group's management and staff are all dedicated volunteers working towards the goal of an eventual humans-to-Mars mission and human settlement of the planet Mars.
In September 2013, the Mars Society appointed Florence Maisch as our organization's new Volunteer Coordinator. Please feel free to contact her with any questions or suggestions regarding volunteer opportunities.
