Compassion In Action (CIA)
What is the Compassion In Action (CIA) program?
If you are between the ages of 14 and 17 years old and want to help animals, come join our Compassion In Action program! CIA gives teens an opportunity to become junior animal socializers. Teens will learn about animal-welfare topics and cat and dog socialization techniques (such as hand targeting and name recognition) and develop an outreach project to educate the community about animals on the last day of the session.
At the conclusion of this program, students will have completed 18 + hours of service, which education staff will sign off on.
Please Note: Students are required to attend at least 6 out of the 8 meeting dates in order to participate in CIA.
How much does CIA cost?
The program costs $80 per student, per session.
