Abraham Lincoln High School – One Day Internships — NSALA CAMPUS
Mutt-i-grees Internship at North Shore Animal League America: We were thrilled to welcome the Abraham Lincoln High School, all the way from Brooklyn to our Long Island campus for their first of three visits. Thirty Pre Veterinary Animal Science Students came to learn about rescue and the work and compassion it takes to ready these beloved animals for adoption into a loving home. The students were hands-on in various shelter departments, including: Shelter Operations, Behavioral, Grooming, Shelter Medical, Foster Care and Rescue. Through experiential tasks, the children learned social emotional skills bridged with humane education. Necessary skills for success in school – in life, based on the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum five themes: Achieving Awareness, Finding Feelings, Encouraging Empathy, Cultivating Cooperation, and Dealing with Decisions. The goal of this Mutt-i-grees Service Learning program is to offer nurturing and effective guidance while learning compassion, kindness and enhancing emotional intelligence.
