About Us

The Youth Animal Rescue Initiative (YARI) is a group of passionate and confident young activists who strive to provide support for animal rescues while empowering young leaders. Through extensive education in what it means to be an activist, we aim to give our members the skills they need to make positive changes in their communities and the world. YARI members will learn fundraising, outreach, and leadership techniques while actively supporting California animal rescues. Our goal is to make a positive impact on the communities we live in while educating the future activists of the world!
