Calling All Future Environmental Leaders...

At this time, the Aquarium is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation, its impact to our world, our nation, our community and our team. Due to the nature of the virus and the need to continue social distancing for the foreseeable future, we have made the tough decision to postpone all Volunteer Programs including the Beginner Environmental Leadership Program.

 If you’d like to be added to our email list for when we are able to begin recruitment – please email Volunteer Programs at with your name, email, and the semester(s) you’re interested in attending.

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.
