Check Out Our New Youth Programs Starting in November!

We are so excited to announce our two new youth programs kicking off in November! Children are the future of animal welfare and we have long been thinking of ways to get our youth more involved in Homeward Trails in a way that is safe, fun, and educational. We have run a very popular and successful summer camp for the last 7 years and want to be able to increase the number of youth served and spread their impact throughout the year.

Each program will run one Friday evening a month in person at the Homeward Trails Adoption Center located in Fairfax Station, VA. Due to current CDC and health department recommendations, all youth will be required to wear masks until further notice.

Homer’s Shelter Helpers

Youth ages 13-17

Cost: $25 per session

First Session November 19

6:00 PM – 8:30 PM

8 spaces available

Geared toward our middle and high school age animal advocates the Homer’s Shelter Helpers program is based around community service with a side of fun. We will start each session with dinner and a discussion topic to help youth learn more about understanding animals, shelter operations, and animal advocacy. We will then dive into volunteering around the shelter – sorting donations, cleaning, organizing supplies, making enrichment toys, or caring for our kitties. Youth can earn 2.5 community service hours per session.
