Volunteer

KnowYourStar started when a couple of us wanted to contribute to the society in our free time in creative ways. We are aware that there are many of you out there with hidden talents and selfless hearts, who wish to contribute a little or a lot, say on weekends or after office.

In that regard, we are happy to tell you that KnowYourStar is majorly a volunteer-run organisation. All our volunteers come with a strong service background and mindset. Team KYS is dedicated to never saying NO to anyone who wants to volunteer. The willingness to offer time, money or efforts to volunteer is very much appreciated by us, and till date, we have been successful in creating various volunteering opportunities to support your service journey.

So if you want to immerse yourself in the joy of service, here are various opportunities for you. Take a look and let us know which one you would be interested in taking up!
