Success Stories

"Hi, I am Selina. I am 25 years old. Very recently, I landed two volunteer positions. The first one is in Ann Arbor at the Hands-On Museum. I will help patrons navigate through the wonderful and fun exhibits. I passed an entrance quiz and completed  online instructions.  Additionally, I attended an onsite introduction and passed the background check. My first volunteer shift will be soon.

The second opportunity to show what a young woman like me loves to do will present itself at the Detroit Zoo. I will volunteer as a Zoo Ambassador.  My training will start soon and I am so excited to be part of the "Zoo Family". I hope to see you soon at both iconic Michigan places. 

Love,
Selina"


"My name is Danny Leonard and I am 18 years old. I am a Senior at Milford High School. I have been going outside from my school to explore and experience different work sites for job training.  I applied and interviewed for the Guest Relations Assistant position at the Detroit Zoo. The interview experience was challenging and a fun experience and I got the job!  I am looking forward to bringing a lot of enthusiasm to my first job.  I have visited the Detroit Zoo since I was a baby and it has always been a delightful pleasure for me. "
