Program Description
Clerical Volunteers provide invaluable support to many of the Zoo’s offices. Clerical Volunteers will perform a variety of functions, including, but not limited to:

  • Stuffing envelopes and preparing mailings
  • Filing and alphabetizing various documents
  • Photocopying and scanning various documents
  • Organizing supplies and materials
  • Database Entry
  • Performing other functions as necessary

Clerical Volunteers can enjoy the opportunity to volunteer in relaxed, small-office environments with deeply appreciative staff members.

Clerical Volunteers will be given an orientation regarding general Zoo policies, as well as the benefits of volunteering at the Toledo Zoo. More detailed, hands-on training will be provided by specified office staff in the area of your placement.

Time Commitment
Clerical Volunteers are required to:
Submit a volunteer application and attend an interview.
Complete the required orientation program.
Give approximately two to four (2 - 4) hours of service per week
Schedule volunteer time in advance with appropriate staff
Inform staff if you are unable to make a scheduled shift or will be absent for an extended period of time

Thank you for your interest in the Zoo’s Clerical Volunteer Opportunities! We look forward to seeing you around the Zoo!
