Youth Corps for Animals

I am writing you today to ask for information on your youth volunteer and/or internship program. We at Youth Corps for Animals (YCA) are assembling a list of animal protection organizations that would like to increase their work with young people wishing to volunteer for the animals. (You may have received an email like this some months ago. If so, I apologize. This project was just restarted after a break of a few months and I may be duplicating some of the work that had already been done.)

The YCA website will enable young people interested in helping animals to find a variety of volunteer and internship opportunities with diverse animal protection organizations. The underlying concept of YCA is to connect young people to their specific areas of interest in the animal protection movement, and to introduce them to the organizations in their communities. The website will allow young people easy access to information regarding local animal protection organizations and/or organizations whose work is specific to their areas of interest.

Please let us know if your organization has a volunteer program and if you are interested in having your organization listed on our website. If you are, please send us the following information:

Name of Organization

Website address

Contact email

Contact name (if any)

Mission Statement or Statement of Purpose

State or country (if not USA)
