Calling All Future Environmental Leaders...

If you have a passion for aquatic ecosystems and a talent of engaging with people, Georgia Aquarium’s Beginner Environmental Leadership Program is for you. Open to all high school students aged 15-17, this program is dedicated to empowering teens to become tomorrow’s leaders in environmental conservation. The Beginner Environmental Leadership Program runs three times a year and will last for four months. Teens may volunteer on any day during the summer and on breaks and weekends throughout the school year.

Upon successful completion of the teen volunteer program & return of their Aquarium ID, teens will receive five one-time use daily tickets.
