Hands & Paws – Ages 13-17

Each Thursday, Sept 5-Nov 14*, 6:00-7:30 pm

Hands & Paws is a new service opportunity for teens that want to try out volunteering, or need short term service hours (20 hours or less) under the direction of our qualified education staff. Each session will include lessons about animal needs and challenges, and different service and volunteer activities, and explore project ideas for Girl Scout Award, Eagle Scout, National Honor Society, and school service projects. Sign up for one, or the whole series! Please note that this program does NOT include the required training for students to continue volunteering independently outside of the program. For longer term volunteering check out www.sicsa.org/volunteen

*No session on October 31.

We also offer Hands & Paws for ages 8-12.
