Humane Education enables young people to approach human rights, environmental preservation, and animal protection as interconnected and integral dimensions of a healthy, just society. Calgary Humane Society offers a number of ways that teachers can get their students involved in Humane Education; Age-appropriate classroom presentations, field trips and Building Bridges Social and Emotional Literacy Program.

The Humane Education Department’s school programs are approximately one hour in length and were developed as an educational resource to support teachers in meeting their curriculum objectives. As educators of responsible pet ownership, empathy and violence prevention, we promote the development of social and emotional literacy skills by offering quality programs at the shelter or in the classroom. Links to specific outcomes outlined in Alberta’s Education curriculum are provided in each program description.

The Calgary Humane Society is proud to offer customizable half-day field trip programs for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12! Students get the opportunity to learn while connecting with animals, completing fun activities and checking out the only fully open-admission animal shelter in Southern Alberta!
