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 workshops and meet directly with hiring managers.

  • 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.

The 2024 JIVE was held on Saturday February 3, 2024.
