Junior PAWS

The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria is excited to share our new virtual humane education program, Junior Pet Advocacy and Wildlife Series (PAWS), with your family! Junior PAWS is a series of humane education lessons ranging from crafts to careers. Lessons utilize Zoom and Google Classroom to bring fun and learning directly to kids and their families at home! Families who register will be emailed the Zoom meeting link and password along with any digital resources needed for their lesson (such as access to the Junior PAWS Google Classroom).

Our FREE lessons are 30 minutes sessions. These series include Crafts with Carly, Fun & Games, and Animal Talk. Our PAID lessons offer more in depth learning opportunities for students and range from 30 to 60 minutes sessions. The registration fee for these classes is $5 per family logging in. Your support will help us continue to offer exciting new interactive lesson plans and materials for you and your family each week. These series include Animal Behavior, Animal Careers, and Junior Trainers. 

New lessons will be posted weekly, so please check back regularly for more opportunities to learn!

We look forward to learning with you and your family each week! And if you are looking for even more activities for young animal advocates, check out our Youth Programs page with more at-home activities by clicking HERE.
