* For most of our volunteer opportunities, participants must be at least 18 years old, however, we do offer our Youth Crew Volunteer Program for high school students.

The first step in becoming a Saualito volunteer is to attend an Open House

Open Houses are held on site in the Discovery Classroom at our main hospital in Sausalito, CA. Review the different volunteer opportunities linked above to learn more about the duties and expectations for each role.

Application Process: Following the Open House, prospective volunteers must complete an application, interview, and background check before being accepted into the volunteer program. Please know that volunteering at the Center may not be the right fit for everyone. Once accepted, volunteers are required to attend an Orientation Meeting and depending on the volunteer role, may be required to take additional training. 

Below are the dates for our upcoming Open House meetings, along with the date each meeting will open for registration. Open House dates will be linked to their corresponding registration page at noon a month prior to the event.
