The Aquarium of the Pacific offers several opportunities for students that are enrolled in high school. All of our programs allow students to volunteer and earn service hours, gain experience, and meet new friends.

Educate your community about marine life! The Ocean Neighbors Project is a 10-week volunteer opportunity that connects the Aquarium of the Pacific with your local community.
Teen Science Cafe Volunteer
Students and scientists work alongside one another to create conversations about science and help scientists to develop language and communication skills to speak to the next generation. These volunteers will help organize opportunities to have scientists connect with other students in the community and expose them to the sciences, and it also increases scientist’s exposure to a younger audience.
The VolunTEEN program is for teen volunteers ages 14-16 who are interested in discovering more about ocean science, leadership, and conservation.
