OHS After-School Clubs


Fall 2021: Compassion Crew Clubs

OHS Compassion Crew Clubs allow youth to develop and strengthen their love of, appreciation for, and knowledge of animals. During the Fall 2021 After-School Club season, youth will have a chance to share about their pets, time to learn about animal related topics, and the opportunity to do something with what they’ve learned.

This fall, we are rolling out our new shelter badge program. Clubbers that come to all the Compassion Crew I (4th-5th grades) meetings will earn their Pets badge. Clubbers that attend all the Compassion Crew II (6th-8th grades) meetings will earn their Kindness badge.

We are currently planning to hold clubs in-person at the shelter (masks required), but that could change if COVID numbers continue to rise. OHS has mandated that staff be vaccinated or tested weekly, and we are developing safety protocols for use in our After-School Clubs.
