We have opened up volunteer applications for the summer season. Our summer hours start on Monday, May 28. We’ll need volunteers to fill the 4PM-8PM shift Monday through Friday.
We are currently located at the temporary facility at the end of the south side parking lot in Manhattan Beach. When we open the newly renovated aquarium at the end of the pier, all volunteers will need to go through a new training course.
The summer volunteer orientation training will be on June 6th and 7th. More details will be sent if you are accepted into the program.
Experience the inner-workings of an aquarium by becoming a Roundhouse Volunteer! Over 100 volunteers assist in running the aquarium 7 days a week, creating an inviting atmosphere for our guests. You will have the opportunity to partake in many exciting tasks such as feeding the animals, maintaining the tanks, and educating the public about our various marine animals!
To join our Roundhouse Volunteer Crew, review our requirements, fill out the online application, and attend both training sessions. Check out more details below!
Roundhouse Volunteers are required to commit at least 2 hours a week for a minimum of 3 months at the aquarium. Volunteers who are interested cannot be afraid to get dirty, cold, or wet since many of the tasks at the aquarium involve dealing with our tanks, animals, and salt water. Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age.
Any interested applicants must fill out an online volunteer application and be available to attend our mandatory 2-day training session. We offer training sessions every other month (January, March, May, July, September, and November) from 4:30pm – 6pm.
