The Hamilton/Burlington SPCA is looking for enthusiastic individual(s) to facilitate the fall, winter and spring sessions of the JUNIOR HUMANE PROGRAM.
Junior Humane is the program for animal lovers. It’s a great way for children to start learning about the SPCA and animal care in a fun and educational setting. We have animal interaction, guest speakers, guest animals, crafts etc. Our focus is always on teaching respect and compassion for all living things. Children learn practical pet knowledge and ownership responsibility.
The facilitator(s) are responsible for instructing a group of up to 15 children. Each session involves a lesson, game/craft and a guest speaker/animal. 6 weeks of curriculum, lessons and training will be provided in advance.
Great volunteer experience for teachers, child & youth workers, social service workers or ANYONE that works with or wants to work with children!
