Many students realize that volunteering is an important part of life and growth. If you have never volunteered before it is definitely an experience you need to have. In addition volunteer experience can be very important for your college applications and for your resume as well. Volunteering for the APA SPCA can be very different from traditional volunteer positions. All of our volunteer positions are set up to be done on your own time schedule and at your own level of motivation. And while some volunteer positions feel like they under utilize your skills our positions are intelligent and challenging. You will certainly come away with valuable experience and be able to feel great that you have made an actual difference.
With so many people out of work some of us face new challenges including boredom, lack of purpose and the dreadful holes in our resumes. Our volunteer positions do not require an extreme commitment however are challenging and engaging. In addition you may use your volunteer bio as a reference, place your experience on your resume and also receive a certificate of appreciation.
At the APA SPCA you can specify which program your fundraiser goes towards. Up to 80% of the money you raise will go to support the program you choose. If you do not have a specific program you want to support, you can rest assured that the funds you raise will always go to the most needed programs and always are made available to a need in your community first.
Most of our lives are incredibly busy but sometimes we need to do something different to keep our sanity and also feel an increased sense of purpose. Our 30 day fundraiser is designed to take a minimal amount of time with a maximum amount of rewards. It helps you to reconnect with family and friends in a meaningful way and also make a significant impact on helping the pets of your community.
Our recommendation: 30 Day Fundraiser
Some of us, and there are many here, have an overwhelming need to be helping the pets of our community on a daily or weekly basis. We often drive around our communities and witness irresponsible pet owners and wish there was something we could do.
