What do you want to do when you grow up?

The Phoenix Zoo is excited to once again host its annual Teen Career Conference! This is a unique opportunity for teens and their parents to explore many different careers in animal science.

Through specially selected speaker panels, attendees will hear from experts in zoology, conservation, animal husbandry and veterinary care working both within the Zoo and out in the natural world. Each speaker will offer insights into their career path and advice on breaking into their respective field.

Representatives from the Zoo and other scientific and educational institutions from around the Valley will be on hand to offer information about their programs and opportunities for teens to begin working toward their careers right now! Volunteer opportunities, camps and other programs will also be highlighted.

All teens and their parents are welcome to attend.
