We stringently adhere to State and CDC mandates on sanitation and social distancing for youth programming in our Humane Ed classroom and in our Adoption Center. Please note that we follow RSU 21's learning model - if our local school district switches to remote learning only, all in-person youth programs at AWS will be cancelled.
We welcome middle and high schoolers to volunteer on certain dates and times as part of our Junior Volunteer program. Junior Volunteer hours can be applied to school community service requirements.
Junior Volunteers see how many helping hands are needed keep the bustling Animal Welfare Society running smoothly. Tasks vary based on the Adoption Center's daily needs and often include cleaning animal spaces, preparing meals, making enrichments and visiting with dogs and cats.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, Junior Volunteers is only being offered on a very limited basis. Students are encouraged to check out our At-Home Project Guide for volunteer opportunities to be completed conveniently and safely at home!
