Join our team of engaging Education Volunteers! The Florida Aquarium’s Education team is excited to be opening a training program for new volunteers to learn about the animals that live at the Aquarium so that they can effectively share their stories with our guests and help inspire them to protect and restore our blue planet!

New Education Volunteers will start off at our touch experiences, assisting guests and helping to ensure animal safety. From there, they will be able to learn to deliver informal and formal talks, interpret at specific habitats, and share their love of the natural environment with our guests!

All new Education Volunteers must participate in an information session, as well as a series of four training classes. The dates for our next information sessions and training classes are below.
