Have you ever wanted to get involved at the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS)? If so, register to attend the Youth J.I.V.E (Job, Internship, and Volunteering Expo) at the Bronx Zoo on Saturday, February 10, from 11:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.

This event is an interactive opportunity for youth (ages 14-26) to learn about paid and unpaid positions at our New York City zoos and aquariums, connect directly to hiring managers, and attend employment workshops. Representatives from WCS Education, Human Resources, Admissions, Retail, Concessions, and Animal Care will be available to share information about upcoming positions and meet qualified young applicants. J.I.V.E will also provide attendees with additional skill-building workshops focused on resume building, interview tips, and careers in conservation.

14- and 15-year-olds can learn more about WCS's volunteer opportunities and how to use volunteer positions as a springboard into paid positions down the line. Chaperones are required for students under age 16.

16-26 year olds will have the opportunity to meet hiring managers and learn about the many jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities available at the WCS zoos and aquarium.

J.I.V.E attendees are encouraged to bring their resumes (both paper copies and on a USB flash drive; staff will be on-hand to assist in filling out applications for positions at the Bronx Zoo, Central Park Zoo, Prospect Park Zoo, Queens Zoo, and the New York Aquarium.
