Review for Bark Avenue Foundation, Glendale, CA, USA
Bark Avenue Foundation and LA'sBEST have collaborated in over 95 presentations for over 30 elementary school sites in the LAUSD afterschool program. We will be continuing to collaborate, developing more curriculum and more ways to reach more of LAsBEST 200 sites in the coming school year. In addition for LAsBEST understanding the shelter support and spay and neuter aspect of Bark Avenue, our collaboration is helping our students and their families practice kindness, compassion and understanding of the shelter animals especially if students and families are considering adoption. The students hear stories and see pictures of real animals and they make toys for the shelter animals. They have an opportunity to visit the shelters in their community to distribute the toys and consider adoption. The values of LAsBEST and the values of Bark Ave are directly alighnned. We believe in the importance of social / emotional learning and working with shelter animals brings this learning into focus. The volunteer presenters make great connections with our students and their presentations are clear and impactful. We will continue to collaborate and grow our relationship in the future.
