The first step to becoming a Memphis Zoo volunteer is to complete an online application. When your application is complete, you will receive a confirmation email that contains the dates for upcoming Information Sessions. Please RSVP to one of these events and attend. This session will cover the basics of volunteering as well as the current and upcoming opportunities. During the Information Session we must collect the $50 Volunteer Membership Fee and conduct a background check. After the background check, you must attend an orientation and fill out all necessary paperwork. After this, you will be an active member of our team of volunteers!
Because our staff tends to be so busy, they do not generally set aside time for interviews. You can, however, feel free to email your questions to our general email, firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be forwarded to the appropriate people, who will be more than happy to answer your questions. You may also attend a keeper chat and ask questions then. The keeper chat times are posted on our Daily Schedule.
Upon completion of the online application, the the next step is to attend a Volunteer Information Session. Please contact (901)333-6654 or email email@example.com for future dates.
