“Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.” – Albert Einstein
The VBSPCA Humane Education Program cultivates kindness and empathy in children by teaching them to understand and respect the feelings of others. Our programs are built on a philosophy of teaching that integrates respect, empathy, and compassion into classroom lessons, stories, and everyday life. The Virginia Beach SPCA educates nearly thousands of children every year through various education programs, including school programming, camps & workshops, our children’s newsletter, and various shelter and virtual activities. By instilling a sense of responsibility into these children, the younger generation is empowered to make more compassionate choices, setting the foundation for today’s children to grow into a kinder, more compassionate tomorrow.
Our current educational offerings are as follows:
