Humane Teen Club

HTC is a junior volunteer and teen development program created specifically for young adults, 13-17 years old. This club is for animal-loving teens interested in animal welfare, helping on campus, meeting other teens who love animals, exploring animal-related careers, and developing public speaking and leadership skills. This fun, informative and interactive program focuses on preparing teens to become responsible volunteers and representatives of Seattle Humane.

Applications are due Aug. 26, 2017 and the program runs throughout the school year from Sept.- May. HTC meets two Saturdays each month, and teens learn about Seattle Humane and receive special training to prepare them to volunteer at the shelter. Space is limited and admittance is based on the strength of the application essay.
