The Zebra Youth’s mission is brought to life every day because of the dedication and generous spirit of our volunteers. We have several volunteer opportunities available.

To learn about Zebra Youth and the volunteer opportunities available we offer a one hour volunteer information session. After learning what opportunities we have available you can decide which volunteer path you would like to take and we can move forward in the process.

We are currently in the process of scheduling future sessions, please check back for a chance to register for our next session.
