Troops & Student Groups
Does your youth group, scout troop or school club want to volunteer at AWS? Group volunteer sessions are open to students in grades K – 12.
Volunteer at AWS with your troop or group
Our Youth Program Coordinator organizes and leads specialized volunteer sessions for Troops and Student Groups. The session 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 AWS program. 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 animal population is being served, students have a greater appreciation for and feel more fulfilled by their volunteer work and see first hand how they make a difference.
We look forward to working with you to create a meaningful, fulfilling and useful experience for your students!
