About

*2016* Students may now leap into a Smart FUN educational volunteering experience at Lehigh Valley Zoo. Our Zoo Teen program is dedicated to giving teens (Ages 14 - 17) the opportunity to get involved in the community. Zoo Teens will guide activities around the Zoo while informing guests about conservation efforts here at the Zoo. This summer program consists of a one day of training. A fee of $15 to help cover the cost of a background check will be due at the training session. After the initial trainging, the mandatory hours to be considered a Zoo Teen is 12 hours per week. We ask that Zoo Teens not miss more than two weeks during the summer program. Lehigh Valley Zoo Teens will gain public speaking skills, initiative and knowledge, and will be encouraged to excel in school and at the Zoo. As a Zoo Teen progresses in the program, there will be opportunities for further career exploration through higher level Zoo Teen/Docent positions.
