Helping Hounds Service Learning Program for Middle-Schoolers
Middle school students aged 11 through 13 have an opportunity to earn Service Learning Hours while learning about and helping animals at the Humane Society of Broward County through the Helping Hounds program. During each weekly meeting, students will roll up their sleeves and do different jobs in the shelter to help meet the needs of the shelter animals, including cleaning cages, feeding animals, socializing animals, making adoption kits, bathing dogs, making enrichment items for the animals, etc. Students will also have a few one-page homework assignments, and participate in a fundraising project to benefit the animals. At the end of the eight weeks, students will have earned 24 Service Learning Hours and will receive a letter to document their volunteer service as well as a certificate of completion. The cost for the 8-week session is $70.
