For teens who love animals, the Mecca for volunteering is the Los Angeles Zoo. It runs a highly regarded volunteer program for high school students, and it’s time to recruit and train the next season of volunteers.

Prospective helpers and their parents should attend an informational meeting on Saturday at the zoo. It’s an academically challenging program that involves ten weeks of training (when kids learn about animal adaptations, ecology, biomes, educating visitors and more), followed by a commitment to volunteer 60 hours per year for two years. Because of this two-year commitment, the opportunity is open only to teens who will be in 9th, 10th or 11th grade in the fall of 2010.

This is a big commitment but one with a huge payoff for animal lovers.

GLAZA Volunteer Information Meeting
Saturday, January 10, 10:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Los Angeles Zoo
Griffith Park, at the junction of the 5 and the 134

    This sounds like a great program. I have yet to see the L.A. Zoo, but I hear they’ve cleaned it up quite a bit recently.
