Student Community Service

The Community Service Program is designed for people who are required to complete a specific amount of volunteer hours.

Duties in this program are general shelter upkeep and assistance (laundry, dishes, floor and wall cleaning, outdoor projects, etc.)- all extremely important, high-demand jobs at the shelter. Please note: there is no direct animal care involved and our onboarding process takes about two weeks.


Volunteers in this category generally have a small amount of required community service hours for educational requirements. Students can volunteer independently if at least 16 years old (with parent/guardian approval). Students between the ages of 13 and 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

HOW TO APPLY: Applicants are admitted into our Community Service Volunteer Program based on shelter needs. Completing an application does not guarantee placement. DOWNLOAD OUR STUDENT COMMUNITY SERVICE APPLICATION

Please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Shannon Cote, at scote@arlgp.org or (207) 517-3934 for community service information and current openings.


We are not able to accommodate Court-Mandated Community Service at this time.
