Volunteers at the Queens Zoo work within the Education Department to help provide memorable educational experiences for our guests.

We offer two different ways to volunteer. As a Discovery Guide (ages 14-24), you will run interactive games, crafts, and activities for visitors at various zoo exhibits. For Adult Volunteer (20+), there are a variety of specialties to choose from—such as leading inquiry based expeditions for school and camp groups, facilitating interactive hands-on activities for guests, or assisting with zoo education programs.

Sound good? Check out our programs below.
