About the Zoo Partners Program:
The Zoo Partners program is a collaborative program between The IMAGE Center, Towson University and The Maryland Zoo in which teens and young adults with disabilities are given the
opportunity to build prevocational skills through volunteer experiences.
These experiences are designed in a six week session to help individuals explore personal abilities, challenges and skills related to personal independence and development needed for future successful employment and life opportunities.
