Become a Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Project Chimps. Caring for more than 20 rescued chimpanzees is a 365 day a year job. We couldn’t do it without the help of our devoted volunteers. We are currently recruiting volunteers that can commit to a regular schedule of 4 hour shifts twice a month (all days and times are available).

Project Chimps also offers corporate volunteer opportunities. We accept corporate groups throughout the year for various projects including facility maintenance, gardening, chimpanzee enrichment, and special events. Groups may be between 6 and 30 individuals committing to a 3-4 hour volunteer service activity.

An application must be on file to be invited to an upcoming orientation. Orientations take place off site and will not include a tour of the facility.


Educational internships in the behavior, husbandry, enrichment and veterinary departments will be available in 2018; please check back soon for information.


Please note:

  • There is no physical contact with the chimpanzees.
  • Interested volunteers must provide proof of a current (within 1 year) negative TB test for on-site positions.
  • Volunteers must be 18 years or older for regular on-site positions however special event volunteers, landscaping, and off-site volunteers are welcome at any age.
