Long Beach Airport
COVID-19 Update: Long Beach Airport's volunteer program, including LGB's STARS, the Airport Therapy Dog Program, is temporarily suspended until further notice.
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:
Community Outreach/Event Support: The City of Long Beach is host to numerous 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. The airport also hosts events such as the annual Festival of Flight and the LGB Live! seasonal music series.
LGB volunteers play an important role in representing the airport as a friendly neighbor. They act as liaisons between the airport and the community, interacting with the public and promoting goodwill. Volunteers also provide important event support, such as assisting the airport booth at events or acting as an escort for musicians and vendors.
Therapy Dog Ambassador: Long Beach Airport is a very community-oriented facility and accommodates travelers with pets and service animals. LGB's STARS (Simple Therapy And Real Smiles) program welcomes trained therapy dogs (and their owners) to relieve stress to travelers who are in need and bring smiles to their faces.
