AAWL Teen Tracks

***Due to COVID 19 we are not accepting registrations for the fall 2020 semester at this time. Registration for this event will open if safe to due so and in accordance with recommendations from state and federal government ***

Become part of a group of teens who share a common interest and passion for animals and helping their community by joining Teen Tracks! This community service driven program helps teens gain knowledge, leadership skills, build responsibility, and develop new friendships all while making an impact in the lives of animals. Throughout the semester, 12 courses are offered on Saturdays allowing them to earn 25+ volunteer hours. 

Teen Trackers will get hands on experience working and caring for some of our animals here at Arizona Animal Welfare League by assisting with the daily care and husbandry of our animal ambassadors. This includes assisting with things such as socializing with the animals, preparing diets and feeding animals, cleaning/sanitizing enclosures, observing and maintaining animal records, monitoring animal diets and health, and more!  Other activities throughout the semester include special projects here at AAWL and offsite volunteer opportunities with other animal organizations in our community!

AAWL Education Center


**Please note The AAWL Education Center is located at 15 N. 40th Place, Phoenix, AZ 85034.**

This is where drop-off and pick-up will take place, NOT the Sonia Breslow Adoption Center main entrance on 40th Street. If you are using a navigation system, do not set “Arizona Animal Welfare League” as your destination – that will take you to the main shelter, not the Education Department. 15 North 40th Place is the address you want to set as your destination.
