To become a General Body Member

To become a Primary or Secondary Volunteer Trainer


What we recommend

If you know you'd like to become a Volunteer Trainer, that is great! We highly suggest starting off as a Secondary Volunteer Trainer. This gives you the opportunity to work with several different dogs and gain confidence as a Volunteer Trainer at your own pace. If you choose to then become a Primary Volunteer Trainer, you've already had time to learn the ropes before taking the leap!

Things to keep in mind

1. Timing

It's easiest to join the club at the beginning of a semester when the semester's interest form is opened, but it stays open all semester! Keep an eye out on our socials for the form or email us to stay in the loop! Anyone can become a volunteer trainer at any time of the year with 4 Paws for Ability.

2. Communication

We are an OSU student organization run by students. We are not a part of the management team of 4 Paws for Ability. Your Volunteer Trainer Application is submitted directly to them at the main 4 Paws facility. Please contact us separately to keep us in the loop with your application status and plans to join our club!

3. Patience

4 Paws for Ability often receives a large amount of Volunteer Trainer applications at one time, so it is not unusual for the process to take several weeks. In the meantime, don't hesitate to reach out to us at OSU 4 Paws with any questions about being a student Volunteer Trainer!
