Youth Volunteers

Youth 15-18 years of age are welcome to volunteer with any department except Aviculture. This is for the safety of both our birds and our volunteers. If you want experience with bird care or training, we recommend our behind-the-scenes opportunities such as Keeper for a Day and Trainer for a Day. If you are younger than 15 and wish to volunteer, please visit the Family Volunteer page.

We accept applications for youth volunteers twice per year. The next application deadline is 11:59pm April 2, 2020 for orientation at 10am on Saturday, April 4, 2020.

Due to COVID-19, we have closed the application and cancelled the orientation.

While the general application is closed, we may make exceptions for those wanting to join our Teen Science Café Advisory Board. For information on how to apply, please refer to our Taking Flight Nights page.
