Thanks for your interest in volunteering!
The Level I volunteer commitment is one shift per month for at least six months from the time you start volunteering. The shift is 1:30-4:30 from November-March, and 2:30-5:30 from March-November. Level I volunteers work in the chimp house kitchen processing produce, doing laundry, and preparing meals and enrichment. There's no interaction with, and very little observation of, the chimps.
Volunteers play a critical role in ensuring the well-being of the chimpanzees. The ideal Level I volunteer is reliable, trustworthy, friendly, and eager to help. If this is you, please continue!
Please note: Our need for volunteers varies. If we do not currently need volunteers in the area you're interested in, we'd be happy to keep your application on file for the future!
