The Baltimore Humane Society and Kids-4-K9s, Incorporated are teaming up to offer a unique summer program at the animal shelter for Baltimore teens. The Program is part of a broader shared mission to increase awareness and promote humane treatment of animals in the community. It is designed specifically for high school students ages 16-18 with an interest in animal welfare and playing an active role in preventing mistreatment of animals.
Participants will spend their time in interactive lessons to learn how to use positive reinforcement to teach and change behavior and how to apply these skills working directly with shelter Dogs (and Cats too!). Participants will also work together to complete a group project of their choice at the close of the program.
The program runs Monday through Friday (5 days); 10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the shelter. Students receive 20 hours service credit at the completion of the program.
PROGRAM DATES: July 25 – July 29, 2022
Space is extremely limited. Once accepted, participants are expected to complete the program in its entirety.
