The Mutt-i-grees Curriculum offers professional development opportunities introducing ways in which social emotional learning and humane education can be integrated into their lesson plans and school culture. 

The goal of the Mutt-i-grees Program is to cultivate empathy and compassion while developing skills to build resiliency and embrace diversity. Service Learning is a key component demonstrating the importance of making a positive difference in your community – the world. That students have the power to make a difference at any age.

For the time-being all programs are being offered virtually. NY state educators can receive CTLE hours for participating.
