The Docent Program is Tanganyika's only year-round volunteer program. Docents must be at least 14 years of age to apply, attend a short interview, and an orientation class. After orientation, additional classes may be required, depending on which opportunities you choose to volunteer for.

Docents are able to follow a variety of opportunity pathways including Animal Care (open to age 18 and up), Birthday Parties, Education Programs (onsite and offsite, including field trips and our camps and classes), Encounters (including our interactive experiences), and Animal Handling. We also have opportunities for Docents to help with special events, office work, and other special projects.

We would LOVE to have you join our volunteer team! Apply today!

Please follow this link to our online application!
