The Safety Net Project serves youth referred by families, agencies and schools who need extra support to manage their behaviors and cope with their particular life challenges. ANT’s programming is set up to provide unique challenges and the horses add to these. The horses often have a way of letting us know which of our strategies are effective and which are not effective. They give us a chance to try out new ways without any judgment, only direct honest feedback. Creating a healthy relationship with an animal can guide us to more successful relationships at home, school and in the community.
“My horse Sundance has taught me to keep at it until I get it right. This has really helped me improve my grades and test scores. Now I review my tests and fix wrong answers. My grades have really improved and now I want to be a vet.” –Olivia, 14 Year Old Foster Youth
75% of parents say Day Camp experience has helped their child in school.
