Youth workshops:

Youth workshops are offered at select locations throughout the Lower Mainland, southern Vancouver Island and the Okanagan on Pro-D Days and weekends. These workshops range from one to three days and are held October through April.  

Participants are immersed in animal-themed activities and are challenged, in fun and engaging ways, to learn about responsible animal care, discover fascinating new animal facts and develop positive, respectful relationships between people, animals and nature. They leave feeling inspired to be ambassadors for animals in their community.

Activities range from active games to quiet hands-on projects and include crafts, guest speakers and time with animals. All activities have been designed by the BC SPCA to incorporate positive animal welfare themes.

Each workshop has a different theme. Themes range from careers with animals to cats, dogs and small animals to horses, wildlife and farm animals.

Other youth events:

Select branches across the province hold youth programs such as After-School Animal Action Series, animal craft sessions, and drop in family events.
