TEENS 13 – 16 YEARS OLD
The Zoo’s Teen Program provides a way for youth to serve their community in pursuit of environmental awareness and career exploration. Teens are offered a variety of opportunities throughout the year with our year-long Zoo Teen Program and the Summer VolunTeen Program.
Each year, Zoo Teens work alongside staff to create a positive and memorable experience for Zoo visitors. Teens perform a variety of tasks at the Zoo that include Animal Handling, Kayaking 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. Click here to learn more…
