Our youth volunteer program gives teens between the ages of 16-18 who are still enrolled in high school the opportunity to complete community service hours for school or scholarship requirements.
We are limited in the number of youth volunteers that we can take on at one time and are only able to bring on new youth volunteers in the Summer, Fall, and Spring at the start of each semester.
We are looking for youth who…
…demonstrate academic excellence.
…can commit to volunteer at least once a week for at least 12 weeks.
…can commit to volunteer on the same day and time each week.
…are willing to work with cats and/or dogs.
…are comfortable talking to members of the public.
If a student is unable to fulfil our program commitments, they will not be accepted into the program.
There is also a $30 program fee that is required of all volunteers.
How do I get started?
To become a youth volunteer, the first step is to attend a Youth Volunteer Info Session. Youth Volunteer Info Sessions are held three times per year in January, May, and August.
After attending an info session, if you still wish to join the program, you will be required to submit an application and participate in an interview.
Upcoming Youth Volunteer Info Sessions:
Our next Youth Volunteer Info Sessions will take place in August 2023. Please check back for registration in June or July.
If you are interested in earning volunteer hours over the summer, registration is now open for our 3-day Ambassadors in Training camp for high school students. All students who complete our Ambassadors in Training program will receive 12 hours of community service.
