This program is designed for volunteers between 14 and 18 years of age who wish to volunteer their time for a good cause, or who need community service hours for school or church. Volunteers younger than 14 can also participate if accompanied by a parent or guardian. We encourage families to volunteer together!
Junior Volunteers help with community outreach and awareness, fundraising activities and our annual GSP Reunion. Although Junior Volunteers aren’t able to work directly with the dogs, we do our best to ensure the activities are enjoyable for everyone involved.
How you can help
Junior Volunteers who are self-starters and can work independently or with a group of their friends to organize and set up one of the following fundraising activities:
- garage sale
- bake sale
- car wash
- dog wash
These can be scheduled at your convenience and in the location of your choosing. We can assist you with planning (if needed), promote the event on our web site, provide an adult volunteer the day of the event (if needed), and verify your hours for your school or church.
- printing and posting flyers
- help at our annual Reunion each September
- help at garage sales and events organized by our adult volunteers
Not ready to sign up? Only have a few minutes? You can still help by downloading and printing this NorCal GSP Rescue flyer and posting it on public announcement bulletin boards (eg: local dog parks, vet offices, coffee shops, libraries, smoothie shops & more).
