Career Awareness at Matt Kelly
On Tuesday May 27th, WHY Ranch team members Amanda Gordon and Alexis DiMauro along with their equine partners, Nevada Joe "Official Horse Ambassador for PATH Intl" and his mini sidekick Doc Holliday attended career awareness week at Matt Kelly. All 370 students particiated in a group discussion about the WHY Ranch and how horses are used to help conduct workshops and be teachers for social skills inside and outside of classrooms for the representation of respect and boundaries. Also, Doc proudly wore his T-shirt and tennis shoes to demonstrate his teaching ability if he were invited into the gymnasium for a presentation. At the completion of each rotation of students they were able to pet Nevada Joe or Doc Holliday and recieved an activity booklet.
It was a great time to help spread the word to more schools about the wonderful cause of WHY Ranch in bulding self-esteem for our youth.
