IMAGE at The Maryland Zoo/Baltimore City

IMAGE Teens & Young Adults at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore 

The IMAGE Center is presently working in collaboration with The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore to provide meaningful and enriching volunteer opportunities to teens and young adults with disabilities. Through this collaboration indivduals are selected to become volunteer interns and work alongside trained volunteers at the Maryland Zoo. Through this role volunteer interns work to exercise vital skills for increased independence in the adult world including skills related to decision making, time management, vocational preparation, team building, goal setting and personal advocacy.

In addition volunteer interns help the zoo in raising awareness of disability related resources and education in order to make the zoo a more accessible, enjoyable place for all.
