In Person Volunteer Opportunities
Central Coast Aquarium
Forget about boring volunteer work and dive into the excitement of working at the Central Coast Aquarium! We’re currently seeking motivated and reliable volunteers to join our organization.
Are you interested in working behind-the-scenes at an aquarium? As an Aquarist you will be able to prepare food for the fish and feed them! As well as take care of any tank maintenance.
Are you passionate about educating and inspiring others to appreciate the amazing life that exists in our oceans? As an Exhibit hall volunteer you can communicate with our guests and give them the fun facts about our critters. You can also do a public feeding for them and pick up a shark for everyone to touch.
If all of this sounds interesting to you, then join us at Central Coast Aquarium!

El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO)
ECHO operates two facilities in North County that each provide meals and a safe and secure overnight shelter to meet the immediate needs of families and individuals in our community who are facing hunger and homelessness. Residents are provided individual case management services to assist them in securing a job and finding permanent and sustainable housing. While staying at ECHO, residents are taught life skills for employment, financial literacy, health care management and parenting.

Meals That Connect
Help deliver meals to homebound seniors! Many of the typical volunteer drivers are seniors themselves, so individuals with low-risk are needed to volunteer. Meals are left on the doorstep after confirming the senior is home and maintaining the recommended social distancing protecting the volunteers as well as the seniors.
Volunteers can sign-up by filling out a general form at https://www.mealsthatconnect.org/volunteer.php, or by contacting a site manager directly from the list of locations at the following page https://www.mealsthatconnect.org/dining-locations.php.
Help is needed with a variety of projects including assembling fresh produce bags, sorting food from the grocery rescue program and food drive donations, and helping to prepare food donations for numerous agency partners.
