Aquarium Greeters

Did you know that the Belle Isle Aquarium is the oldest original Aquarium in the country? It was designed by famed Detroit architect, Albert Kahn, who designed the aquarium to give visitors the impression that they are underwater. 


Volunteer Greeters are truly the face of the Belle Isle Aquarium and ambassadors for the park. They are a friendly smile, welcome visitors to the facility, and available to answer general questions. Training is provided. Shifts are 3.5 hours and are available Friday, Saturday, and Sunday year-round.

Requirements: Friendly and approachable; Enjoy interacting with the public. Available to attend an on-site training.

Belle Isle Park volunteers are required to have a recreation passport to access the island.

Submission of a volunteer application does not guarantee a volunteer position.
