The Jr. Keeper program encourages hands-on learning, creativity, teamwork, a sense of stewardship towards the environment and the development of work place and life skills through a wide variety of volunteer experiences. The Jr. Keeper Program requires at least a one year commitment of volunteering. (One shift per week Sept.-May, after summer training is completed.) A wider array of volunteer opportunities and experiences around the Zoo will open up to the youth after the completion of the first year.
The 2014 Jr. Keeper Program will be open to youth entering the 7th, 8th, or 9th grade in the Fall of 2014. Applications will be mailed in early January 2014. Applications are due February 28th. Interviews for applicants who submitted complete applications will be held in March. Accepted Jr. Keepers will attend Orientation in May, a Retreat in June, and a month-long Summer Training held in July, Monday thru Friday, from 9 am - 4 pm.
