Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) needs more voices for animals! At HSSV, kids and teens can develop responsibility and compassion for animals in need through our many youth programs.
Teens can help make animals more adoptable. Mandatory training days include Orientation to the CIA Program, learning basic obedience with the dogs, play therapy for cats, and a practice session to prepare for the student-run final day event at the Animal Community Center (ACC).
For teens ages 14 – 18, our Education team recruits mature, self-motivated, and dependable teens to serve as our junior camp counselors every summer. Must love kids and animals!
Kids between 10-13 years of age looking to complete service hours can sign up for Animal Starz! Learn to love and help the animals.
Our fun education programs know no bounds! We bring animal education to kids and teens in a fun environment through our Scout Programs, Birthday Parties, Tours, Kind Kids Field Trips, and more. Get your kids involved in our work and snap some super cute cuddly pics with the animals in the process.
