SPEAK: A Virtual Program for Middle and High School Students Who Care About Animals

3 Consecutive Thursdays

 September 22nd

September 29th

October 6th

4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.


Middle and high school students interested in learning more about HRA’s work in the community are invited to participate in a virtual animal welfare exploration. SPEAK (Students demonstrating Passion, Engagement, Advocacy, & Kindness)  encourages students to help animals safely from their homes and schools. During a series of three, one-hour online workshops, students will focus on how to support animals in their communities while becoming more knowledgeable about HRA's programs. And animals in HRA's care will make a guest appearance during each session. At the end of the series, SPEAK participants may choose to create and implement a project that helps HRA help the animals in shelters and in the community.  Projects may include collecting needed items such as toys and treats, highlighting adoptions through social media,  or fund-raising opportunities and awareness campaigns. SPEAK participants become more confident animal advocates ready and able to speak up for animals and help them in myriad ways.
