Come learn about the different volunteer opportunities available with the St. Louis Aquarium Foundation!
Anyone 18 years or older is invited to attend one of our Volunteer Fairs to learn more about volunteering with the St. Louis Aquarium Foundation. A volunteer information presentation will be held at the top of each hour and volunteer interviews will take place after each presentation. Be sure to attend one of the presentations and stay to be interviewed!
Below are brief descriptions of the two roles we are currently recruiting for:
VOLUNTEER AMBASSADORS help the St. Louis Aquarium provide exceptional guest service and education for St.
Louis Aquarium guests. This includes welcoming and answering questions for school groups/teachers, tour groups, daily visitors, as well as helping in the Aquarium with guest flow and answering questions.
EDUCATION VOLUNTEERS will interact with guests to assist in their interpretation of exhibits in the Conservation
& Education Center (CEC). Education Volunteers may also assist in more formal classroom settings, assisting with school group visits and in education classes/programs for youth.
Youth volunteer applications (under 18 years old) are not being accepted at this time.
The Volunteer Diver position is not open at this time, but we encourage anyone wanting to volunteer in this role in the future to get started as a Volunteer Ambassador or Education Volunteer to help with the opening of the Aquarium and the Conservation & Education Center!
We ask that anyone interested in attending please RSVP. Walk-ins are welcome, but priority will be given to those who are on the RSVP list. Parking will be validated on the West Lot, located on 20th Street at Market Street, just behind Maggie O’Brien’s. The Volunteer Fairs will be held in Midway 9, which can be accessed from Union Station’s main entrance on Market Street.
Sign up for one of our time slots to hear a brief presentation on volunteering, and then talk one-on-one with a member of the St. Louis Aquarium Foundation staff to see if this is the right fit for you!
9:00am – 12:00pm
