Do you enjoy interacting with a diverse group of people? Are you passionate about the natural world? Are you ready to learn, and teach, new things? We are looking for you!

At Shedd Aquarium, our Guest Engagement volunteers play a vital role in connecting guests to our collection. They share stories about our exhibits and animals, inspire a love of the natural world, and help make visits memorable.

We're currently looking for summer Strolling Interpretation volunteers to help engage our guests, including those who are waiting to enter the building, an exhibit, or a presentation.

We'll teach you everything you need to know. All you need is enthusiasm and a willingness to learn.

Are you ready to join Shedd's family? Visit to get started and fill out our online application!
