If your student is 16 or older and is an animal lover, this may be the perfect summer opportunity for a volunteer role at My Little Slice of Heaven Wildlife Refuge Center in Attica. This is an opportunity available to faculty, staff, and parents, as well.
NOTE: This would not qualify for Central Catholic’s service hour requirements. However, it would be a great service-learning opportunity.
From the center: We are looking for volunteers who are 16 or older to help come feed babies, clean cages, and learn how to interact with wild animals in a safe and helpful manner this summer.
Teens who volunteer not only get the experience of wildlife rehab, but also get the opportunity to become a rehabber themselves once they turn 18. We are getting desperate for volunteers. The main rehab location is based out of Attica, so transportation there and back would be required.
See the flyer for more details.
