Special Event Volunteer
Friends of the National Zoo is seeking volunteers for a new special event volunteer program. Special event volunteers must commit to at least three special events per year. Most events, but not all, are evening events. Regular special event volunteers receive access to the volunteer newsletter, appreciation events, a discounted FONZ membership and a uniform shirt.
Volunteers must complete an online orientation and attend one of two kick-off meetings during the year. The spring meeting is Saturday, May 4 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The fall meeting is Saturday, September 7 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
In-person training will cover event logistics and an introduction to the Zoo and its mission.
You will be asked to complete a background check as part of this program.
