Through our Community and Cultural programs team, we have established a young women’s mentoring program. The program supports local organisations who work with young women who need some extra support and guidance in their lives. The program aims to mentor young women who are keen on working with animals and wish to further their skills and direction in the workforce. The young women are referred to Taronga Zoo through the program co-ordinator.
At Taronga Zoo, we have collaborated with Juvenile Corrections Services to offer young men the opportunity to work and engage with staff and animals in and around the zoo. The program aims at building positive and respectful relationships for the young men in a work and community setting.This program also provides the young men with the potential to build their skills and knowledge that will further assist them in the wider community and with potential job opportunities.
