AWA is proud to offer educational outreach visits to schools in Camden County and surrounding communities in South Jersey and Philadelphia.
A member of our Animal Education Program staff will visit your school, daycare or group facility. Visits are for all ages and offer opportunities to engage with animals while learning about animal welfare and empathy for all.
Each 30-minute program includes a visit from an Educator, an interactive lesson, and a special appearance from an animal ambassador.
