Humane Education

Animalearn provides a whole host of resources for parents, educators, and students at no cost. Our programs are suitable for a variety of educational levels, including K-12, college/university, and veterinary/medical. We offer humane education curricula and educational kits that cover issues ranging from dissection to product testing. Parents, educators, and students can also choose from a large variety of books, brochures, videos, and more, many of which are available for free. Additionally, our Science Bank is home to the latest in high-tech, animal-friendly educational technology for the classroom.

Animalearn conducts free workshops for educators on how to implement our various programs and products in the classrooms, and we also deliver presentations to students and student organizations that are hoping to use or promote non-animal alternatives in their education. Additionally, Animalearn frequently delivers presentations to classrooms, which serve to foster an awareness of and a respect for animals and others.

Animalearn representatives will work individually with educators or students interested in adopting non-animal alternatives in their classroom. We will also assist students who are interested in creating student choice policies at their schools.
