Professional Development

We encourage administrators to host Mutt-i-grees professional development training to support staff development and promote Mutt-i-grees activities within your particular school. To request professional development at your school, please contact us at info@muttigrees.org.

Mutt-i-grees training is provided by a team of educators from across the country, as well as Mutt-i-grees program staff from Yale School of the 21st Century and North Shore Animal League America. Click here to meet the Mutt-i-grees team.
