Zoo Idaho is looking to round up a new class of teen volunteers for the 2016 season.
On May 10 at 5 p.m. at the Zoo Education Building, 3101 Avenue of the Chiefs, zoo staff will host a volunteer open house for teenagers interested in donating their time. During the meeting, potential volunteers (ages 13 to 17-years-old) will be able to fill out the application and have any of their questions answered. New to the program for 2016, 13-year-olds can be considered with a written letter of recommendation from a school teacher.
Volunteers who are chosen are expected to commit to 40 hours of volunteering. Tasks include caring for the barnyard animals, assisting zoo patrons, helping instructors during zoo camp programs, and more.
If selected to be a volunteer, the applicant will be required to attend the volunteer training June 1 and 2. There is a $40 training fee for youth, which helps offset the cost of training and uniforms. If the volunteer completes 40 or more hours of service, they will receive a Pocatello Zoological Society membership, which grants individuals free entrance to Zoo Idaho and free or reduced admission to more than 70 zoos across the country. Volunteers will also have an opportunity to continue their training through seminars, workshops, and lectures.
For more information on the volunteer program, contact Cory Coffman at 234-6264 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
