LEAP (Leaders for Ethics, Animals, and the Planet) is a revolutionary humane education program providing high school students across the nation with a compassionate alternative to traditional agriculture programs like 4H and FFA. A comprehensive four-year program taught by participating farm animal sanctuaries, LEAP combines interactive curriculum modules with hands-on learning activities, leadership training, and real-world skill development. LEAP aims to prepare the next generation of changemakers to tackle the challenges of animal cruelty, climate change, food deserts, and habitat loss, and encourages them to devise solutions for a more compassionate, sustainable food system.


The 2023-2024 Animal Place program runs from September – June. Curriculum and interactive workshops are hosted every second Saturday of the month from 10:00-3:00 pm, starting September 9, 2023. Students will also participate in 4 monthly service hours.

Application period: August 1 – August 31
Students will be notified by September 1

Students must be 16 years or older.
