Empowering youth to make a difference.
*2023 - 2024 REGISTRATION IS LIVE!*
As part of our Humane Education program, Youth Allies participate in community-focused and Adoption Center events.
This structured and supervised program is intended to engage youth grades 6-12 (5th graders can register if they’ve attended our summer camps) to donate their time and talents in animal-oriented projects and special events.
Students in grades 6-12 will participate together, with high school-aged students taking on more of a leadership role - including additional volunteer opportunities to help build their resumes.
Many of the activities are on-site at Animal Allies Humane Society’s Adoption Center, while others are part of local community events. The program is active during the school year, September through June.
