Animal Service Center
The Animal Service Center Volunteer Program is vital to their operation, and volunteers are making a big impact in many ways. Volunteers assist in the care of the dogs and cats housed in the shelter, they provide support for special events and administrative programs, they open their homes and hearts to animals needing a little extra care in a foster home, and they even assist the veterinary team with the surgery program. Learn more about the Animal Service Center Volunteer Program (like to ASC Volunteer page) today!
Teenagers 13-15 years old
This program was created to help give teenagers that are too old for our camp, their first "real job-like" experience. Working with full-time staff and our camp staff, the teenagers will help implement our successful summer programs. Hopefully this training will allow teenagers to prepare for future job opportunities both with our camp and with others.
Applications for teenagers wishing to join our team must be submitted to center staff no later than Feb. 28th of each year. (Leap year deadlines are extended to the Feb. 29th) Participants will then go thru an interview process with our camp director. Teenagers selected must then pass a Level 2 background check before the summer starts. For more information, contact staff at 891-3946 for Sue McCollum Community Center or 891-3856 for Summer Playgrounds.
Our volunteers help us in so many ways. To list just a few: Greeters welcome guests and new members. Volunteers help with our M-F salad bar and with other programs at the center and at 14 neighborhood sites. Administrative assistants assist with data entry, class check-ins, mail outs, special events, building maintenance and gardening, and much more. We offer Flexible schedules. Contact Gena Varn at 891-4005 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Events (PDF)
Have you ever wanted to be a Snowman? What about a Polar Bear? Well, now you can and much more! That is just one opportunity available when volunteering for Special Events.
