- One-on-one mentorship
- An opportunity to show at the local county or state fair
- An opportunity to show an alpaca at an AOA show or participate in the Youth Judging program
I have volunteered at a residence for foster youth, guided 5th graders on architectural/model building unit for class, Mentored high school kids on architectural program. Their project won a national contest. For the last year I have mentored my girls while they started an alpaca business.
The youth will need to be ready to jump in and get dirty. Alpacas are a big responsibility and all of the care is done by the girls and they will learn about daily care, and how to show. They can show at the county level or join us at AOA sanctioned shows.
Transportation Provided to Alpaca Shows
While the girls primarily show halter/walking fleece, there are opportunities to train an alpaca for performance and they would have the opportunity to show in youth classes.
