Interpretive Volunteer

Find your purpose and give back at the Roundhouse Aquarium Teaching Center by becoming a Roundhouse Aquarium Interpretive Volunteer.

Join a team of enthusiastic people interested in teaching guests of all ages and backgrounds about local Southern California marine life, environmental conservation and related topics. Our tide pool  tank is an example of one of our Roundhouse teaching stations where our interpretive volunteers engage, inspire, and connect others to the ocean! Our volunteers help us to create an inviting and educational atmosphere that connects our visitors directly with our oceans. Volunteers change lives and make a positive difference at the aquarium!

To join our Roundhouse volunteer crew, review our requirements, fill out the online application, and attend both days of orientation and training.


1. Roundhouse Interpretive Volunteers are required to commit at least 3 hours a week for 4-6 months at the aquarium.

2. Volunteers must be at least 13 years of age.

3. Duties involve public interpretation of basic topics of marine biology and conservation.


Any interested applicants must fill out an online volunteer application and be available to attend our mandatory 2-day orientation and training.
