Yes, we do have volunteer needs. Ocean Discovery Institute is providing in-person summer camps and leadership programs and we need science leaders like you, to enhance the experience for our students.
Working in the San Diego community of City Heights, we provide continuous science opportunities paired with mentoring and the tools to overcome challenges so that young people unlock their potential. Our students believe that a scientist is someone they can be, they achieve because of it, and they lead by entering high-paying science or science-related fields and make a difference.
We have both in-person and virtual volunteer openings. If you are interested in volunteering, fill out our volunteer application below. Then read more about our two volunteer opportunities, and sign up for the opportunity that sparks your interest.
