Zoo Teen Program
Zoo Teen Information
Youth serving their community in pursuit of environmental awareness and career exploration.
Each year, Zoo Teens (ages 13 to 16) work alongside staff to create a positive and memorable experience for Zoo visitors. Teens perform a variety of tasks at the Zoo, including Animal Husbandry, Kayaking, Animal Handling, and Public Education. Zoo Teens also volunteer their time for Zoo Camp, fundraisers, and special events.
There are numerous benefits to joining the Zoo Teen Program. Students can use their volunteer experience to meet community service requirements for Florida Bright Futures Scholarships. Teens also have the opportunity to work directly with animals and the public, gaining valuable skills for a variety of careers. Most importantly, Zoo Teens gain an appreciation for the value of volunteer work and community involvement.
Zoo Teens are accepted for a minimum one year commitment. All positions for our 2013 Zoo Teen program have been filled. Applications for the 2014 program will be available in September 2013.
