Shedd is very excited to announce that this coming fall 2015 into spring 2016, we will be piloting our first ever school-year long Work-Study Teen session. This session will run 26 weeks with a mid-season break during the winter holidays.
Shedd is looking for bright, outgoing and motivated teens for our work-study program, either in the summer or on weekends during the school year.
Applicants should possess or want to develop strong communication skills and a connection to Shedd's collection and mission, and have a desire to work in a team environment interacting with the public. This is a professional paid work experience.
Two categories are available to students: guest experience (Shedd Ambassadors), and interpretation (Young Naturalists).
