These are the volunteer positions they're hoping to fill:

  • Volunteer Ambassadors -- who will help the St. Louis Aquarium provide exceptional guest service and education for guests. This position includes welcoming and answering questions for school groups/teachers, tour groups and daily visitors, as well as helping in the Aquarium with guest flow and questions.

    Education Volunteers -- will provide educational content to guests of both the St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station and the Aquarium Foundation’s Conservation & Education Center (CEC) by interacting at exhibits or education carts in defined areas of the Aquarium and/or CEC. Education Volunteers may also assist in more formal classroom settings, working with school group visits and in educational classes/programs for youth.

Volunteers must be 18 years old or older.

An information presentation will be held at the top of every hour, followed by one-on-one volunteer interviews.
