Volunteer applications are currently on hold. We are currently located at the temporary facility at the end of the south side parking lot in Manhattan Beach. Applications will be available when we open the newly renovated aquarium at the end of the pier.
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.
