The Los Angeles Times was the first to break the news about the wonderful thing the Los Angeles Animal Services is offering for students during the LAUSD teacher strike.
With many parents concerned about what their children can do during the strikes, LA Animal Services launched a campaign to encourage kids to volunteer at one of six animal care centers throughout the city.
Say it with me...AMAZING!
With so many students left without teachers this gives students a place to go, while contributing to society.
Animal Care Services tweeted on Monday:
“Ten student volunteers will be at each center from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., learning about the work we do and pitching in to care for the animals and the facility. The half-day session includes supervised visiting time with an animal and education about proper care of animals and animal behavior.”
This is a brilliant idea! Leave your thoughts and comments!
Students ages 12 to 18 are eligible, and can reserve a spot in advance by sending an email to Animal Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (213) 395-1163.
