Join the Georgia Aquarium Family

Volunteers and interns make waves in the community and do an ocean of good!

As a non-profit, Georgia Aquarium depends on the help of extraordinary volunteers and interns to continue our mission to inspire awareness and preservation of our ocean and aquatic animals worldwide.

Georgia Aquarium’s various volunteer programs match your skills, talents and interests to available opportunities and current needs in over 30 departments. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with a passion for conservation and aquatic life, who can work independently in a fast-paced environment and have a thirst for learning.

While each program varies in its commitment level, opportunities and benefits, they all contribute to great experiences for millions of guests each year. We hope to “sea” you soon!
