Fostering a love of animals can start early, and we are grateful for the young people who help the pets in our care.
Ways to Help
Youth volunteers 15 years old or younger are welcome to volunteer at AWS with a parent or guardian volunteering alongside them. Those aged 16-17 are welcome to volunteer individually with a parent or guardian’s consent. We offer occasional part-day volunteer camps for kids, usually during school breaks. We also host volunteer scout troops and other youth groups. Finally, youth volunteers can also help AWS from home, with adult supervision, using our At-Home Project Guide.
