ARF's youth volunteers make important contributions to animals and people while volunteering independently of their parents. Structured programs for middle school students and high school students offer engaging, age-appropriate activities on weekends, after school, and during scheduled school breaks.
There are many fun and interesting things youth and teens can do in their communities to help animals at ARF. Community Service projects are a fantastic way to get volunteer credit for community service requirements, build job skills and gain work experience, or for inclusion on applications for college or scholarships.
