NOAA Inouye Regional Center School Group Volunteer & Community Outreach


National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Inouye Regional Center
Are you passionate about learning about the climate, weather, oceans, coasts, and marine life?  Do you love engaging with students and your community?  If you said yes, then volunteering as NOAA Inouye Regional Center (IRC) may be an exciting opportunity for you!  There are many ways you can participate from escorting school children between tour stops, leading portions of the tour, and/or developing new tour content.  We also have community outreach opportunities that occur on the weekends.
There are opportunites to attend upcoming volunteer orientation sessions on various dates. To get a tour of the building and learn more about what volunteering entails, please fill out this brief survey .  Currently, NOAA IRC tour dates are on most Tuesdays and Thursdays and run for 2.5 – 3 hours between 8:30am – 12 pm. These may expand in the future, as we build up volunteer capacity.  Any support from our community would be greatly appreciated.
Check out our 3-minute introductory video for a sneak peek at the NOAA facility.

About the organizer

The NOAA Daniel K. Inouye Regional Center (IRC) is a state-of-the-art 350,000-square-foot research facility built on a historic landmark site on Moku‘ume‘ume (Ford Island) in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi. The IRC encompasses the principles of a sensitive architectural intervention in a historic context—the careful preservation of two WWII fighter aircraft hangars and the insertion of a new building that complements and enhances the individual parts into a comprehensive whole—to create a facility that promotes and showcases NOAA’s mission and services to the people of the Pacific region. The facility consolidates over 700 NOAA staff from multiple line offices (NMFS, NWS, NOS, OMAO, and NESDIS) into a campus rooted in NOAA’s mission and the cultural traditions of the Pacific Region. The IRC includes wet and dry research laboratories, a dive center, a 24-7 tsunami warning operations center, research library, an auditorium, and a public exhibit space.
