The Tennessee Aquarium is a private, non-profit organization and volunteers are vital to our success. Aquarium Volunteers educate our guests, care for our plants and animals, assist in our offices or volunteer behind the acrylic walls as divers. Discover the unique, educational and fun volunteer opportunities at the Tennessee Aquarium.

Volunteer Positions:

The volunteer application process consists of a written application and a personal interview. A training program is required for most positions. We ask our volunteers to make a one year commitment with the Aquarium.

If you have questions call the volunteer office at 800-262-0695 ext. 3057. Please fill out an on-line application and someone will call you to set up an interview. You may call the volunteer office, leave a message and your call will be returned promptly. You can also e-mail us at
