HAWS Animal Career Exploration

The Humane Animal Welfare Society will be starting a new school-year session of our club for high school students called Animal Career Exploration (ACE). This program is geared towards students who are interested in joining a profession working with animals. At ACE programs students will have an opportunity to hear from and ask questions to speakers from various types of careers.

Students will hear guest speakers from a variety of professions talking about what they do from day to day in their job, what training and education was required for that profession, and what high school students can do now to start to plan for that career.

The cost for HAWS ACE is $15.00 per session. The first meeting is on Wednesday, October 6 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

Students can go to this link for additional information or to register online:
