Summer Junior Volunteer Program 2017
2017 Program has been Filled
Interested in a summer of fun and learning? The Aquarium invites rising freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors in High School who are genuinely interested in marine biology, zoology, and environmental science to take part in our Junior Volunteer Program. Those selected to participate in this program will have the opportunity to work alongside experienced volunteers as habitat interpreters and under the supervision of the Education Department. Throughout the duration of this program, the Aquarium encourages participation in additional opportunities that enable students to learn about the Aquarium and explore areas of personal interest. This program is designed to be fun, rewarding, and interesting. Junior Volunteers must always adhere to the Aquarium standards for appearance and conduct.
To be eligible for an interview, the application and one reference must be submitted by the deadline.
The deadline for 2017 application has past. We are no longer accepting applications.
Come back later for the 2018 volunteer application!
It is our hope that participation in this program will provide experience necessary for future education and employment opportunities in marine biology and aquatic science. Please note there is a $25 fee for this program due upon acceptance by the orientation date.
Stay Tuned for the 2018 program
