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.

Please contact volunteer program manager, 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.
