Only free for a few hours but still want to help? Come to the Heal the Bay office and support the staff in the daily efforts of environmental education, research and advocacy.
With over 10,000 members and numerous projects, we're always looking for help. Especially needed are responsible daytime volunteers with general office skills to help us with data entry, mailings, phone calls, taking out recycled paper, preparing bags and gloves for beach cleanups, helping in preparation for special events, etc. We have something for everyone to do!
Wednesday afternoons from 1:30pm – 5:00pm is the time that Heal the Bay has set aside for office volunteers, but other times may be available.
Internships are a great way to explore your particular environmental and ocean related interests while providing Heal the Bay with much needed assistance.
Internships are available throughout the year to interested adults seeking environmental experience or college credit. Lasting from weeks to several months, qualified individuals are assigned to specific projects working with experienced Heal the Bay staff. Internships are available at both Heal the Bay's main office and the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium.
Internships are unpaid, but all necessary training is provided. Qualified candidates should be well-organized, responsible, and have strong oral and written communication skills. For some internships a car will be necessary.
Interns are usually required to commit to at least 8-10 hours per week. If you are unable to work for that amount of time, you can still help out by being a Heal the Bay volunteer. Or, if you are interested in a paying position at Heal the Bay, please view our available job openings.
