This project is for a field trip to The Gentle Barn. The Gentle Barn will allow our students to develop a sense of appreciation for nature, while helping to foster empathy and compassion. Our students come from deep within the Los Angeles city limits, and have not spent much time in nature--many have never even seen a cow in person! I want them to have this opportunity. I know with the right exposure and the right experiences, my students can develop invaluable skills that will someday transfer into a desire to uplift their own communities. "Humans aren't as good as we should be in our capacity to empathize with feelings and thoughts of others, be they humans or other animals on Earth. So maybe part of our formal education should be training in empathy. Imagine how different the world would be if, in fact, that were 'reading, writing, arithmetic, empathy.' " - Neil deGrasse Tyson Help us to foster all of these skills with our scholars!
