The Animal Connection For Youth and Schools

Would you like to bring effective humane education programs to your school or community center?

Animal Connection for Youth and Schools

APNM’s programs engage students with relevant and interesting topics in animal welfare. Students engage in experiential learning opportunities that include registered therapy dogs, games and activities and feature animal professionals from the community. APNM’s humane education programs build an ethic of kindness and compassionate animal stewardship through learning activities that are aligned with the Common Core Academic Standards adopted by the New Mexico Public Education Department. Adapted accordingly for grade level, The Animal Connection program is available in a comprehensive twelve-week version for grades 3-5 and 6-8. A shorter version (four-week) is available for Pre-Kindergarten through 2nd grade. When outside funding is available, these school-based programs are free of charge to schools with a free and reduced lunch rate of 80% or more and to schools in native communities.
