Kids Community Service Program

Apply Today…Students, grades 6 through 12, can share their passion for animals by participating in the Kid’s Community Service program during the school year. The month-long programs meet one weekday per week (Middle School meet on Tuesdays or Thursdays, High School on Wednesdays) from 4:00-5:00 pm.  We do not offer any other days for students to volunteer.

Kids Community Service (KCS) is our volunteer program that teaches middle school and high dishesschool students about the shelter, the community and the animals around us. During their volunteer session, students earn community service hours by helping to maintain the shelter facilities and socializing adoptable animals.  Space is limited to nine students per each four-week session and applications are accepted throughout the school year. KCS does not meet during school breaks and middle school students must either be in 6th grade or 12 years old to participate.  KCS is the only volunteer opportunity at Rancho Coastal for children under the age of 18 and is only offered during the school year.

To apply please download and read the Rules and Regulations form. If you agree to these rules, you may download and fill in the Application and Consent form and return them both to RCHS by mail, fax, email or in person. Both the application and consent form must be filled out and submitted to be considered for the program. Applications are considered incomplete and will not be considered if they are not submitted with a completed consent form.
