Teen Volunteer Program

We are planning to reboot our Summer Naturalist program in 2023. Please check back in spring 2023. 

Should you have any questions regarding the application or any of the volunteer programs, contact the Community Engagement Office by emailing volunteer@wavefoundation.org.

Summer Naturalist:


Summer naturalists provide exhibit interpretation and engage guests throughout the Aquarium. The Summer Naturalist program is for high school students ages 14 to 17 years. Students receive training about our animals, and exhibits. Students must commit to a minimum of 100 hours on the exhibit floor from May through Labor Day weekend. Orientation and training will take place prior to May.

Teen applicants must also submit a letter of recommendation from a teacher, mentor or adult sponsor (other than a parent) with their application.
