Junior Zookeeper Scholarships

For a donation of $150, you can sponsor a child to learn leadership skills in our summer Junior Zookeeper Leadership program.  The scholarship recipient will be selected by zoo staff and awarded to the child based on need and merit.

The Junior Zookeeper Leadership Program allows children aged 11-17 to have access to a wonderful opportunity to learn about the variety of animals at the Zoo, and to share their knowledge with the public.  It has proven to be a great way for kids to learn responsibility, build leadership and time management skills, gain self-confidence, and get some quality time observing and learning about wildlife.  We aim to make this program accessible to all the youth in the Fargo-Moorhead community and surrounding areas.
