ARK ANIMAL CENTRE TEENAGER HOLIDAY PROGRAMME
Students will be working to a structured daily programme which is designed to enable them to learn life skills that they will not be able to learn in everyday life. Students will learn to take responsibility for themselves as well as their group. They will learn more about themselves and their capabilities, which will increase their confidence in their abilities. Students will learn to think ‘out of the box’ in a fun, relaxed environment. On completion of this course students will have an intimate knowledge of how a shelter is run, their canine knowledge will be extensive and they will have gained confidence in their ability to take care of themselves in regard to being lost, feeding themselves, first aid and pioneering skills which will be of lifelong value to them.
Community service is a fantastic opportunity for the students to learn about those not as fortunate as them, as well as learning to give. The problems we have encountered is that the students are walking away with very little learned skills which in our opinion is just wasted time. We want our students to have gained an intimate knowledge of the workings of the shelter as well as outdoor skills, which is ideal for any student to grasp an insight into what they are capable of achieving on their own and with others. The students will be working under instructors well versed in there various activities and will be monitored throughout all activities.
