One mission of BAFN
is to foster an interest in animals for youth. We
take pride in providing students with opportunities
for career exploration, self-discovery, personal
development and community service.
The most obvious benefit of participation, of course,
is that students get to work with animals! Participants
are specially trained to handle many of the small
animals in the Brooklyn Animal Foster Network.
What's more, participation often fulfills a student's
community service requirements. Some of our participants
have received community service credit for their
work with us. (Students should check with their
school to determine whether BAFN participation
meets this requirement.)
