Do you love working with people AND love animals? Make a difference in the community and inspire compassion for animals by becoming an HSHV Humane Education Volunteer!"
Humane Education Volunteers will lead tours, give presentations, and inspire compassion through facilitating educational programming. We would love to put your public speaking and teaching skills to good use as a Humane Education Volunteer!
During our Humane Education programs, youth of all ages learn about animal welfare, animal care, and enjoy hands-on animal loving. Help us host programs such as Party Animal Birthday Celebrations, Pets and PJ’s Movie Night, Girl/Boy Scout Programs, Field Trips, Camp PAWS, Little Paws Story Time, and more! Most of our programs involve working with youth, but we do offer tours and presentations for adult groups as well.
Humane Education Volunteers are asked to commit to volunteering 4-6 hours per month. Programs are scheduled almost every weekend, which is when we need the most volunteer support. We also have programs during the day and during the week, on a less regular basis.
