Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Public Program Docents are the heart and soul of our visitor experience. Public program volunteers serve as docents, guides, and exhibit facilitators throughout our facility 7 days a week. These volunteers help inspire visitors about the ocean and maritime history through memorable and hands-on experiences! Volunteers must be age 14 and older.
In this volunteer position you will use the ocean as a classroom to educate people of all ages. Experience will be you teaching tool. This is accomplished in a variety of ways including but not limited to utilizing our touch tanks, discovery pools, hands on experiments, crafting, and our underwater Remote Operated Vehicle. Every day is a little bit different and exciting! Help us connect visitors with our most important resource, our oceans. If you enjoy interacting with others, this is the position for you.
There are 3 required trainings for this position. We require a 1 year commitment for our Public Programs Docents. Volunteers must also complete a minimum of 2, 4 hour shifts per month to be considered an active volunteer.
If you can make this commitment and want to be part of our volunteer team, please contact us for more information.
