WHAT IS A MARINE TEEN?
If you are between the ages of 15 and 18, responsible, enthusiastic, passionate about marine life, and work well with children, then you should apply to be a Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada Marine Teen!
Marine Teens volunteer at Aquarium Day Camps (minimum two weeks in the summer, plus additional days during March Break), and assist with special event days at the Aquarium and at community events. Time volunteered at the Aquarium may count toward community service hours.
WHAT DO MARINE TEENS DO?
Marine Teens act as assistants to Day Camp staff and Aquarium Educators. Responsibilities may include:
- Preparing materials for activities
- Facilitating children’s activities
- Helping to clean up after activities
- Assisting with escorting children through the Aquarium and to outdoor areas
Additionally, Marine Teens assist with special events and community events, such as the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.
