Mandatory training date is Saturday, May 30th, 2009.
(Must have completed one year of high school biology)

As a youth volunteer you will help visitors locate camouflaged animals, assist guests in touching a live sturgeon or tell visitors how much an alligator snapping turtle weighs. This is a great way to meet students from other schools and gain important experience interacting with adults and children.

The Youth Volunteer program is designed to give high school students the opportunity to become actively involved in their community by providing valuable volunteer hours. Students from city, county or private schools who have successfully completed a year of high school biology are eligible for the program.

Youth Volunteers are responsible for attending a special training class on Saturday, May 30, 2009. After successfully completing the course and passing the exam, the students become members of the education volunteer force, and will be responsible for a 4.5 hour shift twice a month.

Application Process:

  • Fifteen students will be chosen to participate in the high school volunteer program for the Tennessee Aquarium. Applications are due by April 24, 2009 and notification letters will be mailed no later than Monday, May 4, 2009.

  • Applicants must be high school students between the ages of 14-17 years old who have completed a high school biology class and be able to volunteer for ONE calendar year.

  • One mandatory training Class will be held on Saturday, May 30, 2009 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
