Humane Education Resources

How do we learn the values of compassion, respect and empathy?

Whether you are a parent, an educator or a concerned citizen, this question is critical. The American Humane Association's multi-faceted Humane Education Resources Program can help you answer it.

We believe that one of the best ways to protect children and animals -- and, on a broader scale, create a more humane world -- is through humane education that teaches kindness toward other people, animals and the environment.
