Description: In today's sheltering environment, it can be challenging to include a humane education component in planning and operations. Even though education is a key element in creating change, it can be hard to find the resources to make it happen - or to successfully sustain it. Using case studies and working models of programs in place around the country, this webinar will give participants best practices and proven business models to help them position humane education as a mission-critical and self-sustaining initiative, one that may support itself financially as well as support other organizational needs. It will also review marketing, evaluation, and partnership models.
