Annual Job, Internship, and Volunteering Expo

Have you ever wanted to get involved at the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS)? If so, join us for the WCS Youth JIVE (Job, Internship, and Volunteering Expo)! This annual event is usually held in early February.

The WCS Youth JIVE is an interactive opportunity for youth (ages 14-26) to learn about paid and unpaid positions at our New York City Zoos and Aquarium (BRONX ZOO, CENTRAL PARK ZOO, PROSPECT PARK ZOO, QUEENS ZOO, AND THE NEW YORK AQUARIUM). Participants will:

    • attend employment workshops to gain important skills;
    • attend career panels with a variety of WCS staff; and
    • connect directly to hiring managers from a variety of departments.

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.

16-26 year olds can meet hiring managers and learn about the many jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities available at the WCS Zoos and Aquarium.

JIVE 2024 will take place on Saturday February 3, 2024.

There will be options to participate in-person at the Bronx Zoo as well as virtually through a self-guided experience.
