Do you love animals? Do you enjoy nature and being near water? Do you want to know more about our blue planet?

The Office of Teens Programs is the place to start if you want to get involved at the Aquarium. We offer a variety of volunteer and paid opportunities for teens ages 13 through 19.

Different programs happen throughout the year and have different application deadlines. Get a handy overview on our Youth Programs Information Sheet (PDF 3.7MB). We do not currently offer job shadows.
