Benefits of Volunteering at AWA-AWE
 
1) Developing better interpersonal/communication skills. Learn to motivate and understand others better, as well as problem solve.
 
2) The longer you volunteer the more developed your skills will get.
 
3) Improve job opportunities. Volunteering looks good on any resume. AWA offers up a great reference for those seeking a job!
 
4) Improve building skills.  If you are right out of school for perhaps welding or carpentry, or maybe still in it, what better way than to apply your newly learned or developing skills/trade than through volunteering at AWA?
 
 5) Improve your knowledge of building. If you are wishing to better your lacking in skills ability, then what better way than to come out and learn! For those whom have never built a wolf den, or put up fencing, built a pond, come on out we can still use your heart and hands!
 
6) Learn about wild animals! Have you ever wanted to work with wild animals or perhaps simply learned more about them? in particular wildlife rehabbing or wolves? then AWA is the right place for you. Through you volunteering, as a perk you get to meet the wolf residents at AWE and get to know them in a more personable way. See what it takes to walk on the true wild side with wolves. There may be an opportunity for the right person over time to help with educational presentations with the wolves.
 
7) If you become a consistent volunteer you will be awarded a pendant that holds a bit of shed wolf fur, and long term volunteers will get a t-shirt. Just our way of saying THANK U!
 
8) The pride and satisfacton in knowing YOU CARED to help make a difference!

Please Note: We are not provincially, or federally funded. We work to support the outreach work, any programs, and the wolves out of our own pockets, NOT the other way around Through your sponsorship and buying wolf gifts from us, you are not supporting US the human caretakers, any funds ALWAYS 100% go towards future educational programs, & expansion/enrichment for the wolves only, we work jobs like everyone else to support ourselves. The wolves are not bred for profit, nor do we make a living off their lives. We believe if wild has to be in captivity, that they should have jobs to help their wild brethren via educating with their wild messages. We believe in keeping wild; wild and thus actively participate via partaking ourselves in, and financially supporting other worthy wildlife rehab organizations, & wildlife/habitat conservation organizations.
