Kids Community Service
Kids Community Service (KCS) is Postponed at this time. We hope to resume KCS in September. Please check back in SEPTEMBER for updates regarding registration.
Students, grades 6 through 12, can share their passion for animals by participating in the Kids Community Service (KCS) program during the school year. The month-long programs meet one weekday per week from 4:00-5:00 pm. We DO NOT offer any other days for students to volunteer.
The KCS volunteer program teaches middle school and high school students about the shelter, the community and the animals around us. 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 including summer. Middle school students must be in 6th grade 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. KCS is not offered during the summer.
