The Program

Education + Professional Development

Through extensive education in what it means to be an advocate, YARI members are given the tools they need to make a difference in the lives of animals. During monthly meetings (beginning in June), participants will learn from guest speakers like veterinarians, rescue founders, and artists who provide help for rescues. Additionally, YARI members are invited to take part in group and independent projects including adoption events and fundraisers, gaining valuable experience in the world of animal activism.

Program Components

Our Point System

Members will receive points when they participant in group projects, or complete their own. With the accumulation of points, members will be able to receive letters of recommendation.
