Our 2-hour Page Pals orientation is for parents and children who wish to participate in our Page Pals reading to cats program.
The Page Pals program is open to youth volunteers ages 6 to 15 with parental supervision. Our Page Pals volunteers provide enrichment and reduce stress for cats, while at the same time strengthening reading skills, by reading out loud to our feline residents in their Real Life Rooms.
During orientation, supervising parents will learn the ins and outs of this youth volunteer program, including how to understand cats’ body language, recording hours, and navigating visiting sessions. Children readers age 10 and up are invited to attend this orientation as well.
Parents will also need to complete an online nationwide criminal background (see link and additional information on previous page) before orientation in order to confirm their space in the orientation class.
This class is free and limited to 15 adult attendees.
