HELPING TEACHERS INSPIRE COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS, PEOPLE & THE ENVIRONMENT

Character Education

Caring for others, that's community!

Caring communities are connected, inclusive, and collaborative. Being engaged and active in our community benefits those who contribute and care for each other and our collective well-being is served by these relationships. Animals are also an important part of our communities and they play a vital role. Animals are often part of our families, we depend on them for food, and many other roles. By working together, empathizing with others, and demonstrating care for all, we are improving our communities for everyone and every living thing.
