A key part of the NSS educational and outreach activities are two programs designed to serve local communities around the world. The NSS chapters program supports a global network of chapters that provide individuals a voice for space in their own community. Chapters are the heart of the society’s local outreach efforts. Chapters engage in developing and sponsoring education-related activities in their community, creating exhibits for public display, judging science fairs, meeting with politicians to discuss space-related issues, and a variety of other activities. For more information about chapters, see Local Chapters of the National Space Society.
A second community outreach program is the NSS Space Ambassadors. Ambassadors are NSS members who have applied to serve as outreach speakers in their community. Individuals whose applications are accepted go on to deliver presentations that align with NSS goals and meet general proficiency and ethical standards. For more information, see Space Ambassadors.
