L.A. Zoo Youth Council Program - Educational Stipend
The L.A. Zoo is launching a Teen Council for Conservation to unite youth and create pathways towards a future centered on conservation solutions in Los Angeles. This program will serve diverse Angelenos highlighting their strengths as leaders and advocates, building skills in conservation and community building, and empowering youth to enact change in themselves, at the Zoo, and in their communities. The Teen Council for Conservation will focus on issues surrounding conservation, social and environmental justice, and climate, and the specific focus will be determined by the members each year. We are asking our partners to help us spread the word to their networks in support of our efforts to more equitably engage the communities of Los Angeles. Please see below for important details about the program. More information can be found on our website at https://www.lazoo.org/join-our-community/teencouncil/ or in the attached announcement and flyer.
The L.A. Zoo Youth Council program is intended to provide young Angelenos with direct engagement and learning experiences to benefit their educational paths and life journeys.

Zoo Teen Council for Conservation.
