Do you know a teen who loves learning about animals and is looking for a unique summer service learning opportunity? If so, Junior Zoo Crew at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore might be the perfect fit! The Junior Zoo Crew program is an excellent opportunity for teens ages 14-17 with a passion for wildlife and an interest in animal care to learn more about our exotic animals and the careers of those who care for them! Participants will engage in a wide variety of experiences to serve the Zoo community, to develop career skills, and to broaden their understanding of wildlife and the environment. Don’t let this opportunity slip past your students!

Applications are now available and will be accepted by our office until Sunday, May 1st, 2016. Interested applicants must complete an application, submit a report card, and send two reference forms (available at our website) in order to be considered for the program.

If you have a student in mind who might be interested in this awesome opportunity, please encourage them to check out one of our flyers (attached) or to visit our website to learn more. We hope that you will encourage your students with an interest in education, environmental or wildlife careers to consider joining us this summer. You may post, publish, and circulate the attached flyer as you see fit in order to bring it to the attention of your students.
