Youth Volunteer Program
Last year, out of growing interest from young people to get involved with Animatch, the Animatch team started the Youth Volunteer Program. Since the age requirement to be an Animatch volunteer is 18, we felt it would be a fun idea to have a youth group that could help with our events or create their own fundraising events.
The youth that have participated are between the ages of 11 and17 and they have helped out at our different fundraising events (garage sale last summer, valentines day photo-shoot, Bark and Brunch, etc.)
We also started a youth shadow program where 14+ youth can shadow a volunteer at the center for a 3-hour shift. This program is popular among high school students who have community service hours to fill for school and who love animals!
If you or someone you know would like to volunteer in our Youth Volunteer program, just fill out the volunteer form on our website. We hold an information session roughly every month for those who sign up. You will be invited to the center, given a tour and info about Animatch and presented with different volunteering opportunities.
