Visiting CHS Speaker - Pre-Teen/Teen Groups

Description: Does your group want to learn more about the Connecticut Humane Society? Are you interested in learning about how your group can make a difference for pets in need? Request a speaker to visit your group for a presentation about how CHS plays a vital role in providing animal welfare services for the people and pets of Connecticut. This program is a great alternative for groups that aren’t able to visit one of CHS’ three locations for a tour. Group discussion is encouraged through the use of critical-thinking questions. Access to an on-site computer/projector is required. A donation of $50 or equivalent of in-kind donations is requested for this service. This presentation is especially helpful for student groups that are thinking of organizing a fundraiser or collection drive to benefit animals. CHS representatives are not able to bring a live animal on visits.

Age: 12-18 (6th-12th grade)
Capacity: 10-35 students
Length: 30-60 minutes

Availability: Weekdays, early evenings and weekends. Presentations will be scheduled based on the availability of CHS’ trained volunteer representatives.
