PetSet Youth Club is a fun, comprehensive program for youth in grades 5-7 who want to learn about animal welfare issues while developing leadership and community service skills. New members are welcome any time.
PetSet is a service learning program. This enhanced form of community service ensures that youth play an active role in choosing, developing, implementing, and evaluating the work they do for their communities.
PetSet activities are focused on these areas:
PetSet Youth Club meets once a month in Woodbury (Tuesday) and Golden Valley (Wednesday), during the school year. See a calendar of PetSet meeting dates.
PetSet is an ongoing program, but members must register for one semester at a time. The registration fee for each semester is $75. Space is limited, and memberships are available on a first-come, first-served basis. New members are welcome any time. (Members joining after the first meeting will pay a prorated registration fee.)
Registration for Fall 2014 opening in August!
Please note: PetSet is not a “junior volunteer” program. While some animal time will be included in most club meetings, participants should not expect to spend significant time with animals waiting for adoption. Animal time may also include meeting and learning about non-shelter animals, such as service dogs or therapy animals. View a sample of PetSet activities to see more of what this group can do!
