Based in our Education Department at the New York Aquarium, Discovery Guides are seasonal volunteers (14 – 21) who receive training in customer service and basic interpretation. Discovery Guides focus on a select group of visitor experiences and, in turn, gain experience with teaching, leadership, public speaking, and learn about animals and the wild places they inhabit!
Discovery Guides who successfully complete the program will be eligible for other volunteer opportunities at the New York Aquarium.
Participants must be 14 years old and have graduated from Middle School at time of submitting application to participate.
Volunteer opportunities for Summer 2018 are here!
