San Diego Coastkeeper offers twice-monthly volunteer opportunities through our community beach cleanup program. To learn more about community cleanups, click here.

Additionally, we periodically solicit volunteer assistance with educational and outreach events, co-hosting beach cleanups, and occasional administrative tasks. Once a year, we recruit a hard-working batch of volunteers to help out at Seaside Soirée, our large annual fundraiser and celebration of the last year’s worth of clean water victories. You can stay in the loop about all upcoming volunteer opportunities by signing up for our newsletter.


San Diego Coastkeeper loves positive symbiotic relationships, and the partnership we have with our interns is among the best. Internships are where talented people can apply their strengths and skills in legislative work, marketing, education or event planning to meaningful environmental work. For full details on Coastkeeper internships, check out our internship page.


Coastkeeper is happy to offer community service verification letters for volunteer work done under supervision of Coastkeeper staff or at Coastkeeper event. We cannot verify community service for unsupervised hours, such as time spent conducting your own beach cleanup using our Beach Cleanup in a Box kit. For people who need to complete a large number of hours as part of a certification program or by court order, we occasionally need help with in-office projects such as assembling education kits and stuffing envelopes, and you are welcome to reach out to us to inquire about current availability. Please write to [email protected] if you have any questions.
