Project Chimps is currently recruiting volunteers who can commit to a consistent schedule of 4-hour shifts twice a month.

We encourage you to register today. Our volunteer shifts generally fall between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. In the following areas:

  • Chimpanzee Care
  • Chimpanzee Enrichment
  • Administration
  • Fundraising
  • Communications/Marketing

Volunteer Program Levels

Project Chimps currently has a three-level volunteer program based on experience and interest. Level 1 or “red shirt” volunteers assist with all duties except chimpanzee care.

After 100 hours of experience, volunteers are invited to promote to Level 2 or “yellow shirt” status, which allows them to assist caregivers in cleaning the chimpanzee villas and providing food and enrichment for the chimpanzees.

With 250 hours of experience, volunteers may pursue Level 3 or “purple shirt” status.  These volunteers will specialize in one area of the sanctuary and will be the Volunteer Leaders responsible for training new volunteers and supervising other volunteers in their department.

Please note that neither volunteers nor caregivers have direct physical contact with the chimpanzees.
