What is the difference between service learning projects and volunteering?
Service learning projects are completed independently or in groups, off-site and with the guidance of the Society’s education staff as needed. Students are able to develop a project that best meets their requirements and can complete the project at their own pace. These projects may include, but are not limited to: fundraising, supply drives, awareness campaigns or research projects. These projects do not include working hands-on with shelter animals.
Volunteering occurs at the Hawaiian Humane Society’s Moiliili campus or at off-site Society events. Volunteer opportunities vary by age and have differing time commitment requirements. Opportunities for volunteering may include hands-on work with shelter animals. Volunteer positions are posted as they become available.
