Request Humane Education Presentations

The National Humane Education Society (NHES) offers free humane education programs for schools, churches, clubs, libraries and other venues serving children across the United States.

About our “Kindness in the Classroom” Humane Education Presentations

“Kindness in the Classroom” is NHES’ free interactive humane education presentation offered to schools nationwide. Our standard program lasts around 45 minutes and is designed for students in Kindergarten through 5th grades. “Kindness in the Classroom” addresses:

  • Meeting the basic needs of companion animals
  • Ways to interact with animals safely and responsibly
  • The importance of showing kindness and respect to animals

Our programs are free to all schools, public and private, and can accommodate 20 to 300 students per assembly. Where permitted, humane educators may bring a friendly “shelter dog ambassador” to the program or partner with a local therapy dog team (when traveling out of state). Presentations are most effective when targeted to a specific age level, so many schools prefer to run a few assemblies throughout the day by grade level.
