The Association of Professional Humane Educators - A Wonderful Resource
Have you heard of the Association of Professional Humane Educators (APHE)? If you are a humane educator or anyone who does community outreach for a humane society or any group that educates the public on issues related to animal welfare or the human-animal bond, then you will want to find out more about the APHE and become a member. The APHE is made up of a wonderful group of caring people who are eager to help their communities and their fellow educators. The APHE website provides terrific resources for members and their Yahoo group and annual conference are accessible to anyone who wants to learn and contribute.
Members enjoy discounts from various organizations, access to the membership directory, the Pack Rat newsletter and access to a list of resources.
Please visit www.aphe.org for more information.
Join the APHE Yahoo group for access to information from other humane educators. Examples of the some of the topics that have been discussed include: dog bite prevention programs, choosing videos for motivating teens to become involved with animal welfare, best activities for animal-based summer camp, how to motivate volunteers, Boy Scout projects to help your shelter, activities for kindergarten children on the topic of caring for animals, educating youth to prevent dog fighting, favorite books for kids and lots, lots more.
You don't have to be a member to join the Yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aphe/. Joining that Yahoo group is a great way to get your questions answered and find out more about what humane educators do.
