The students are high risk young boys that are now given the opportunity to learn about themselves, gain confidence and understanding of their emotions. These students lack social emotional skills, self regulation and confidence.
These students have the desire to be better students and want to be successful.
All of them have different issues that are preventing them from reaching their highest potential.
The students want to be self confident, self regulated, they just need to learn the skills in a positive way.
Humans can learn many things about themselves through working with animals. Watching the horses in their herd can mirror situations in their classrooms.
This program uses the horse as a tool for the student to learn self confidence, decision making and team building.
This will give them the confidence to believe in themselves.
We will work with youth who struggle with emotional, social, or behavioral problems. Equine facilitated activities will help reduce anti-social behavior and aggression through relationships with the horses.
Hoping that learning these skills will be a positive factor in preventing the student from dropping out of school.
