SIGN UP AS A VOLUNTEER
1. Join a visitor tour. We encourage prospective volunteers to join a visitor tour to familiarize yourself with Ocean Discovery and our range of short-term and long-term volunteer opportunities. We offer tours Wednesdays (3:30-4:30 pm) and you can check the calendar for times.
2. Submit a volunteer application. If you decide volunteering is right for you, complete an online volunteer application. All youth volunteers (under the age of 18) will need parent/guardian permission to volunteer and volunteers younger than middle school age will need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian. If you go to a school in our school-shed, you and your family can volunteer too!
Once your application is approved (usually within 48 hours), you’ll receive an email from us letting you know you are ready to get started.
During this process, we’ll ask for some basic information about you including your name and address. We’ll never sell this information to anyone or share it with anyone outside of Ocean Discovery. The information we collect helps us stay connected with you about upcoming activities and events. It also ensures we continue to deliver quality programming.
3. Sign up for a volunteer opportunity. Congratulations! Make a difference by signing up for short-term volunteer opportunities or explore a long-term role that will deepen your involvement. Long-term roles may require additional steps. See the Volunteer Opportunities section for volunteer opportunity descriptions. If you need help, come on in or give us a call and we can get you started.
