The Discovery Guide program is an educational volunteer opportunity for youth ages 14-22 at all 5 Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) Zoos & Aquarium: Bronx Zoo, Central Park Zoo, Prospect Park Zoo, Queens Zoo, and the New York Aquarium. Please note: All sites offer a summer session; some offer a spring and/or fall session. Check below for additional details.
As a Discovery Guide, you will engage zoo visitors in fun, educational activities throughout the park; assist with education programs; and support wildlife and the environment through WCS campaigns. There are many exciting opportunities for you to take advantage of, and opportunities to grow within the program throughout the seasons. In this role, you will join the WCS Education Department in our mission to inspire a diverse and inclusive movement of conservation advocates!
