Canine Assisted Learning (CAL)
Building Resilience Program for Young People
Just like adults, young people can become overwhelmed and stressed, they can have mental health issues, and they may experience disadvantages or trauma.
The Canine Assisted Learning Program encourages students to slow down and experience the unconditional love of dogs whilst also building resilience and social skills, creating an opportunity for tangible growth.
CAL is another way in which we combine youth and community to produce lasting and meaningful outcomes for everyone involved.
Take a look at the video and find out what our CAL Program is all about.

CAL Volunteer Expression Of InterestWe are looking for volunteer humans and dogs to assist in running programs for young people for 1-2 hours per week for 4-week blocks at a time. Our programs are delivered as part of our youth service both onsite at Ingleside and directly in schools and the community.
The programme helped me learn more about myself and see a new way of learning.
