Teen Volunteer Training

Experience ARF's mission and values in action in ARF's Teen Volunteer Training program! High school students: Learn the fundamentals of working in a dynamic non-profit organization while you make a positive change for animals at ARF and in the community. Express your compassion, commitment, and motivation while you build collaboration and leadership skills. 

Due to high demand for this program, teens interested in participating in the Teen Volunteer Training program must complete an application. If accepted into the Teen Volunteer program, teens will be required to complete an orientation, in-person interview and training.

Once training is completed, possible volunteer opportunities include:

  • Animal Care and Adoptions
  • Veterinary Clinic
  • Humane Education
  • Outreach and Events
  • Leadership
  • Boutique/Retail

Cost: $250 fee covers staff and materials for training.

Our new and improved Teen Volunteer Training program is anticipated to launch in January 2018. During this year long program, teens will be provided with opportunities to volunteer as well as develop academically through educational workshops with humane themes. The program will allow for teens to choose which days they want to volunteer or attend workshops, according to their changing and busy schedules. After their one year commitment teens may re-apply to the program so as to extend their stay for another year, where they will have opportunities to work with cats and dogs, in the clinic or boutique, or become a camp counselor.

Applications are due no later than Sunday, December 3, 2017
