Volunteer Opportunities

Long Beach Airport (LGB) has established a volunteer program of individuals who serve in various capacities at and around the airport. Volunteers come from many different backgrounds but all are enthusiastic and love to educate others. If you enjoy people, or have an interest in local aviation history, this may be the volunteer opportunity for you! We offer different roles in which you can help:

Travel Ambassador

Our Travel Ambassadors are responsible for greeting and assisting passengers at the airport. A friendly face and knowledge of airport layout, transportation and Long Beach activities are key to making Long Beach Airport “where the going is easy.” Ambassadors may also be asked on occasion to escort people throughout the airport.

Airport Tour Guide/Escort

Many groups and individuals tour Long Beach Airport. Schools, scouts, clubs, and the general public have all experienced tours tailored to fit their interests. Tour Guides are trained in the operation and rich history of the airport, and have the opportunity to educate visitors. We even invite our own LGB firefighters to share their knowledge (schedule permitting). Tour Escorts do not conduct tours, but are needed to assist the Tour Guides in keeping the group together.

Community Outreach/Event Support

The City of Long Beach is host to a lot of special events every year, and the airport is on hand to support many of them. LGB has had a presence at such diverse events as the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, “First Fridays” in Bixby Knolls, and the “Ready Long Beach” emergency preparedness event, where information and airport promotional items are given to attendees.

LGB volunteers act as liaisons from the airport to the community, interacting with the public and being a source of goodwill. They play an important role in portraying the airport as a friendly neighbor.
