Membership

Joining the Animal Education and Rescue Jr. or Teen Youth Club is a one-year commitment. We are looking for enthusiastic youth who love animals, want to learn more and help make life better for both animals and people.

We encourage all members to stay active for the entire year, build friendships, learn new skills and have lots of fun!

Membership dues are from November to November each year. The cost is $40.00/year, which includes a t-shirt (which must be worn at all meetings and events) and a snack at each meeting. If you join after April the cost is $20.00 from April to November.

We are also always looking for dynamic, forward thinking adults to help lead the club.

For more information, contact us. Membership dues and application can be sent to our mailing address.

Meetings are held the first Sunday of each month from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at the Libertyville Civic Center. Please check our Events Calendar for any changes.
