Teen Opportunities

NEW Youth Volunteer Program Assistant opportunity for teens

We are excited to launch the new Youth Volunteer Program Assistant opportunity for ages 13-17 this summer!

Program Assistants have the opportunity to build leadership skills and gain new knowledge while supporting summer camp sessions at the Wisconsin Humane Society Milwaukee, Ozaukee, and Racine Campuses. Program Assistants will volunteer their time at summer camp assisting with crafts and games, facilitating group activities, and helping with the general needs of daily camp activities.

Teens interested in the Program Assistant opportunity need to complete an application using the link below, with the support of a Parent/Guardian, to be considered for the program. We encourage young people of all diverse backgrounds to apply. Please note the Program Assistant opportunity has limited enrollment and there is the possibility that not all applicants will be accepted.

To become a WHS Program Assistant:

  • You must be 13 to 17 years of age
  • Application must be completed and submitted by Sunday, May 1 (we may be recruiting more volunteers soon - check back soon!)
  • Applicants will be notified via email by Friday, May 13 about whether or not they have been accepted into the program
  • Accepted applicants will need to attend an in-person training session on Thursday, June 16 at the Milwaukee Campus

Additional requirements:

  • Program Assistants must commit to at least one full camp session (5 days)
  • Program Assistants must commit to attending camp each day during the duration of their assigned session. If the Program Assistant is unable to attend a particular day or needs to leave early, please notify WHS youth programs staff as soon as possible.
  • Program Assistants must have reliable transportation to and from camp each day.
  • Please send a bag lunch to the program each day. WHS does not provide lunch.
