YOUTH ALLIES

program

Empowering youth to make a difference.

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 camp) 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. 

Meeting dates will be released before the start of each month.

Registration is $75 and will allow you to participate September 2020 - June 2021. Each participant will receive a Youth Allies T-Shirt (BRAND NEW 2020 DESIGN), a custom Youth Allies sticker, and an Animal Allies goodie bag!
