I have been volunteering since June as an Animal Ambassador. If possible, I try to volunteer once a week during the school year. I have always wanted to be a volunteer at the Greensboro Science Center and come here often because I have a SKYWILD membership.

Volunteering is fun and I meet so many amazing people. You are able to interact with them and inform the visitors about the animals and the artifacts that we have on our carts. It’s rewarding to talk to people and see their reaction when they learn something new.

One of the benefits that volunteers receive for their service is the opportunity to do SKYWILD whenever there is an opening.  It’s incredibly fun to be able to go whenever I want.

 

*The Animal Ambassador Program used to be an opportunity for students ages 13-17 that was offered only during the summer. We have now expanded the program to allow students that successfully completed the summer program to continue on as a volunteer through the school year. Nico is one of 18 students to participate in the School Year Animal Ambassador Program!

Spend the day with us and come nose to beak with playful penguins, get eye to eye with awesome otters, explore the human body, experience Mother Nature’s fury and fun, and encounter exotic animals like tigers, meerkats, and lemurs!
