The volunteer peer mentors are a key factor in the successful
integration of our visitors with the animals, allowing for unique
and positive memorable experiences. The animals bring people
together, but it is our amazing youth volunteers who keep
people coming. Our unique and individualized programs
involving a strong "Circles of Friends" concept provide the
friendships and bonds that know no boundaries. Genuine
connections are made that have a huge impact on all involved.
Supported by private, corporate and service organization
donations, Nova's Ark provides programs and activities that
benefit the community in various ways. Nova's Ark has created
many customized day visits, summer and spring camp
opportunities and off site presentations for service
organizations, group home facilities, education centres and
special event functions. The development of the youth leadership
program has created an impact felt throughout the Durham
community and various social service agencies.
