There are 3 steps to becoming a LHS Teen Volunteer:
1) RSVP to attend a teen orientation with a parent or legal guardian
2) Choose an available volunteer program & attend required training
3) Sign up for one shift a week for a 3 month volunteer session
Teen Orientation: The first step to volunteering is to RSVP to attend our teen orientation. Attendance with a parent or legal guardian is required. Teen Orientations are held quarterly. Once the dates have been set you are welcome to RSVP, this will ensure that the dates will work for your schedule. Dates for the spring orienation can be found below.
An application, waiver, shift request, and a donation of $25 will all be collected at orientation (checks preferred). The paperwork will be provided at orientation or you may download & print it off our website.
Training: Training in the program will be held the days following orientation. There are no make-up days and all training dates must be attended to participate in the volunteer session.
Commitment: We ask for a minimum commitment of 1 shift a week for 3 months, with an option to renew your participation at the end of the session.
Summer Session 1: FULL.
Summer Session 2:

Opportunities for Younger Children (ages 8-12)
We know there are many children in this age group who would love to work with the animals; unfortunately, we do not have the supervision to offer this as independent volunteer work. May we suggest, however, that an adult, over the age of 18, work as the primary volunteer and the child may accompany the adult during their volunteer time. Please refer to our Adult Volunteer section for more information.
