Animal Hero Class by the Hawaiian Humane Society

The UH West Oʻahu Library will host the Hawaiian Humane Society’s Animal Hero class from 1:30-4:00 p.m., Oct. 7, in the exhibit space on the second floor.

The Animal Hero course is a required class for students grades 6-12 who want to help the Hawaiian Humane Society as part of a school or club project or to earn community service hours. Participants learn about types of challenges animals face and the design of meaningful projects to help pets.

Students will identify their project goal or goals and how this can be achieved.  Upon class completion students receive continuing guidance for their project as well as opportunities to complete community service.

Each year, Animal Hero helps about 125 students produce quality projects for school, church, scouts and other organizations. However, the class does not prepare students for hands-on work with animals at the Hawaiian Humane Society. Fees and tuition will be waived for this session but participants must register at hawaiianhumane.org/animalhero6.
