Additional Volunteer Opportunities

General & Creative

  • Graphic Design – we rely on volunteers for most of our digital and print assets (flyers, brochures, etc.) Please email mitch@surfridersd.org if you would like to donate your design expertise to a great cause.

Ocean Friendly Restaurants

  • Request a Volunteer Resource Package and receive tools including email templates and step-by-step guides for reaching out to new restaurants and performing compliance checks.  Please email vicki@surfridersd.org for more information.

Hold Onto Your Butts

  • Cigarette “Butt Can” installation & maintenance – with almost 200 butt cans installed countywide and regular requests for new ones, we could really use some help. This is a great way to make a measurable difference in cigarette butt pollution in your community! Please email mark@surfridersd.org to find out more.


If you are a student seeking an internship, please email our Chapter Manager, Mitch Silverstein. As we are primarily a volunteer organization, we can only offer internships to students who will receive academic credit for their work. Otherwise, we will classify you as a volunteer.
