Troops and Student Groups
Does your youth group, scout troop or school club want to volunteer at AWS? Open to groups of students in grades 6-12, our youth volunteer program makes that possible!
Volunteer sessions begins with an instructional period in the Humane Education Classroom in the Boston House (the white house at the end of Holland Road) that focuses on a specific animal population, task, or program at the Animal Welfare Society. Then students participate in volunteer work specific to that topic. The instructional period leading into the volunteer session adds value to the work being done. By knowing why specific tasks need to be done, how the tasks are applied, and what population is being served, students have a greater appreciation for and feel more fulfilled by their volunteer work.
Youth volunteer groups are welcomed to help out once or on a recurring basis.
