Become a ZooCorps teen volunteer!


Middle school outreach program from Woodland Park Zoo

What is ZooCrew?

ZooCrew empowers middle school aged youth to become conservation leaders by providing engaging experiences that inspire them to learn, care, and act through after school and summer expanded learning opportunities.

Through the ZooCrew program we excite youth from traditionally underserved communities about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) subjects in school, prepare them for continued involvement in Woodland Park Zoo’s youth programs, and inspire them to consider a broad range of STEM and conservation careers.

Seattle Public School District

  • Aki Kurose  Middle School
