WCS Youth J.I.V.E.

Annual Job, Internship, and Volunteering Expo

Have you ever wanted to get involved at the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS)? If so, register to attend the WCS Youth J.I.V.E (Job, Internship, and Volunteering Expo) at the Bronx Zoo. This annual event is usually held in early February.

The WCS Youth J.I.V.E. 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), connect directly to hiring managers from a variety of departments, and attend employment workshops.

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.
