The Volunteen Program is designed for youth ages 14-17, and practices an experiential learning model focusing on development of leadership, interpersonal and professional skills while fostering responsibility, guest service and commitment.
New Volunteens interact with the public by introducing conservation topics and sharing the stories of our animals at specific animal exhibits. Over the course of their first year, Volunteens will also have opportunities to become involved in areas such as Safari Day Camp, Horticulture, and a number of special events.
Once their level of commitment and responsibility has been demonstrated in the program, Volunteens will have the opportunity to work alongside Zoo staff performing animal care and husbandry.
This program requires a one-year commitment from the teen volunteer, and from his or her entire family, who must provide transportation, encouragement, support and cooperation. This program is a serious time commitment and Volunteens are expected to make this program a top priority during the year.

Besides boycotting the companies playing us in this hoax, what else do you suggest we do to stop this scam?What methods of boycott can be proven by documents?How raise…See More
