Youth Programs

We are working to build a community of youth that are knowledgeable, passionate, and driven to make the world a better place for dogs and communities in need. We have unique opportunities tailored to every age of Street Dog Hero supporter! Here are a few ways you can get your child involved!


A primary piece of our mission is to educate communities, and especially youth, about the importance of the humane treatment of animals. As part of our work to fulfill this goal, we host annual Humane Education Kids’ Camps over Spring and Summer Breaks! These camps are not only educational but also a lot of fun! Camps are announced on our website and social media so stay tuned!


Welcome to the SDH Junior Hero Club! Our club is a place for middle school aged students to gather, grow and connect in the animal welfare world. Meetings will be held the 3rd Thursday of every month at 6pm here at the Street Dog Hero Office. We will have humane educational components, activities, guest speakers, service projects and, of course, dogs! For more information or to sign your kid up to become a Junior Hero, please email


Calling all High School students! Want to participate in a fun and rewarding leadership club? Love dogs? This club gives high schoolers the opportunity to learn about animal welfare, volunteer their time, raise funds, host guest speakers, work with dogs and have fun along the way. Street Dog Hero currently has an established club at Summit High School. If you attend a high school other than Summit and would like to establish a new chapter, or for more information on the Summit Club, please email

International youth Opportunities (ages: 10+)

Kids 10+ get the opportunity to join us abroad for our International Spay/Neuter Clinics! These clinics are an incredible way for kids to learn about a wide array of topics including veterinary care, other cultures, and how they can make a meaningful impact. To bring your Junior Traveler along for an International Clinic, submit an interest form here.

Camper Mom Tribute

“My 7-year old son participated in the inaugural SDH spring break camp and we couldn’t have been more happy with the experience. In his words “I loved it! I have GOT to do it again this summer.” His favorite guest presenter was an animal intuitive that gave him some tips to bond with our new gecko. He was excited to go every day and energized and happy coming home. Becca, the lead teacher, is just the sweetest. We can’t wait for the next session!”
