Volunteer at the Silver Beach Carousel!

Looking for a fun place to give your time? We have openings for volunteers who have a strong work ethic and are willing to work hard while having fun. Plus, the job description includes laughing, playing and making magical memories for all ages! As a nonprofit organization, the only way The Silver Beach Carousel can make all of this happiness year round is with lots of fun-loving people like you. The more volunteers we have, the more hours we can open the carousel to the public. Whether you’re 14 or 84 years old, we can use your enthusiasm and ideas. You don't have to make a big time commitment, either. You don't even have to work every week. Just pick the days and times that work for you. Signing up for shifts is easy, too. They typically last about 2.5-3 hours. Register online or call and let us know when you can help. Read about the different roles below and volunteer at the Carousel soon!

Merry Makers

What joy you'll bring as one of our carousel operator assistants* or hosts. You'll guide visitors to where they can purchase tokens and help them have safe and happy rides. Thanks to you, they will learn fascinating facts about the Carousel and the interactive exhibits in the Silver Beach Amusement Park Museum. You'll help them find The Brass Ring Gift Shop and direct them to the restrooms. Be our ambassador for the area, informing guests about fun things to do while they are in Southwestern Michigan. Give our Carousel figures TLC, and help us keep the Carousel house tidy. Pass out literature about upcoming events. You will also assist the Refreshment Stand staff when needed.

Poppers & Spinners

If you enjoy interacting with all ages, you'll love being a Popper & Spinner volunteer. Mmmmm, you'll create the tantalizing aromas of warm popcorn, freshly made caramel corn and cotton candy that draw a steady stream of customers to our striped Refreshment Stand. These volunteers pop, spin, serve and sell. At the start of the day, you'll set up our concession machines and clean them when the day is done. When the boardwalk is closed, you'll sell soft drinks, bottled water and make change for other purchases and activities. If you like bagging up happiness, this is the role for you!
