Parent and Me Volunteer Program - 8-15 years 

Thank you for your interest in serving Cat Depot as a Parent and Me Volunteer.

We require both the youth volunteer and their guardian attend a mandatory orientation to learn about the program, requirements, and commitment levels, before volunteering. The youth volunteer must be accompanied by a guardian at all times while volunteering.
