Afterschool Workshops

afterschoolworkshops(1)

 

Our afterschool workshops cover the same content as our school programs, however, the afterschool workshops are best when scheduled once a month or more over the course of a year. Examples of groups we work with are Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, and many more that have after school programs. In the afterschool workshops, children will learn the importance of animal welfare, speaking up for those in need, and learn social-emotional skills necessary to inspire young leaders of tomorrow.
 
All after-school workshops include time spent with animals. We have programs for children from Elementary through High School. We offer one to two hour long programs, best on a monthy or bi-monthy schedule.
