Project Mickey Objective

Project Mickey, our elementary afterschool program in partnership with Baltimore City Public Schools, aspires to build positive attitudes towards animals by providing children with:

  • Activities for children to strengthen use of vocabulary for expressing feelings
  • A safe space to express empathy, a necessary component for compassion towards others
  • Positive role models who can share their experiences and knowledge about animals
  • Fun and educational lessons on animal needs, communication, and training
  • Real life stories of animal abuse and neglect and the effects on people, animals and the community
  • Positive interactions with pre-screened dogs including opportunities to learn training techniques
  • Opportunities to collaborate with peers in teams and demonstrate individual interests and talents
  • A chance to use what they have learned to educate others and/or advocate on behalf of animals or organizations that support them
