LEAP Program Funding
We are thrilled to announce, in collaboration with Rancho Compasión and Jameson Humane, the launch of the first full year of an all-new agricultural scholarship program, LEAP (Leaders in Ethics, Animals, and the Planet).
After being approached for an alternative to slaughter by students in Future Farmers of America, we knew that students and animals deserved a more humane, kinder option, so we decided to create just that.
LEAPers will participate in online classroom education and will volunteer each week at their local participating sanctuary with hands-on farmed animal care. They will also learn about climate solutions, the humane treatment of companion and farmed animals, and will develop leadership skills, public speaking proficiency, and responsibility for themselves and others.
To compete with FFA and 4H programs where students earn money for sending their animals to slaughter, we are offering student scholarships for the successful completion of the LEAP program. We are also working to obtain material and staff funding for continued program development and operations.
By donating to the LEAP program, you are assuring more students and animals can have a compassionate alternative to traditional ag programs long into the future.
