Looking for something wild to do? Explore the internship opportunities at Northwest Trek.
The internship program at Northwest Trek Wildlife Park is designed to provide an individual with practical experience while gaining valuable knowledge related to his or her career goals.
An internship is an intense, concentrated, non-paid volunteer position that allows an individual to assist his or her assigned department in performing both routine and special activities.
A Trek internship requires a commitment of a 24 - 40 hours/week for a period of 10 - 16 weeks. Some internships require a longer commitment (see individual descriptions for hourly and weekly requirements.) An applicant for an internship must be at least 18 years of age, a college student or recent graduate and must be flexible with his or her schedule having the ability to work weekdays, weekends and holidays. All positions are non-paid. On-site housing opportunities may be available. Although Northwest Trek's intern program is not affiliated with an academic institution, Trek staff will work with an intern to accommodate school requirements for those who are eligible to earn credit.
