The American Rabbit Breeders Association is committed to the development and expansion of the ARBA Youth Department as a means to engage young rabbit and cavy members in reaching their fullest potential - both as knowledgeable and accomplished participants in the
rabbit/cavy hobby and as responsible adults capable of contributing in positive ways to the hobby and society in general.
ARBA youth activities and contests provide a variety of enrichment activities that encourage youth participants to develop knowledge and skill regarding rabbit and cavy husbandry; responsibility, teamwork, and leadership. These skills enable youth members to thrive and succeed throughout their lives - within and outside of the hobby.
