Animal Related Career Summer Intensive

Animal Related Career Summer Intensive

Animal related career summer intensive is a free four week workshop designed to expose urban youth to the veterinary and agricultural sciences.  Applicants should have an interest in pursuing an animal related career and be prepared to participate in hands on workshops and field trips.  The hope is that students walk away with a better understanding of their future goals.  The animals we work with are those not typically seen in urban enviroments.  During the time spent in ARCSi, students will be encouraged to give back to their community throughout the year. 

The deadline for submission has been extended to June 30, 2017!
