Youth Volunteer Program

Fall 2017 Youth Volunteer Program

Are you looking for a unique extra-curricular activity for your middle school student who is passionate about rescuing animals? Is your high school student looking to complete community service hours in an animal setting? The FredSPCA Youth Volunteer Program may be for you! Please join us this fall for a fun and educational experience at the Fredericksburg SPCA humane animal care center, where your child will gain new knowledge and experience in animal care as they work alongside staff and volunteers.

What is it?

The FredSPCA YVP is a series of educational, recreational and volunteer activities that help students understand how our shelter operates and allows them to cultivate skills in animal care and advocacy in the community. Often students who sign up for this program are already passionate about animal rescue and want to help further

When is it?

Thursdays (4:00 pm to 6:00 pm) and Saturdays (3:00 pm to 5:00 pm) from 9/14/2017 to 12/9/2017

How much does it cost?

The cost to register varies based on how many sessions your student signs up for. Individual sessions cost $15 , or you can buy a package of 6 for $75 (this includes a slight discount per session).

Do parents have to stay?

Absolutely not! Though you are welcome to join our team of volunteers and participate with your child, the beauty of the YVP is that our staff supervise work with our young volunteers so that they may participate independently from their parents! Go grab a cup of coffee or run to the grocery store while we provide a fun and enriching two hours of activity for your young animal lover!

How do I register?

To register, simply stop by the shelter to sign up and pay the fee(s) associated with the number of sessions you would like your child to attend, or email our Community Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator, Candi Armstrong, at candifredspca@gmail.com to set up a time to register! At this time, registration is not available online, but we hope to have this option available soon!
