Pre-Vet, Veterinarian, and Animal Behavioral Help Needed
NoSchoolViolence has completed a research survey showing that 67% of children ages 5-18 have little opportunity to learn how to be empathetic and compassionate. The majority of children in the United States are surrounded with violence, both virtually and in real life. A steady diet of violence arguably has the impact of minimizing a child's ability to comprehend the value of empathy and compassion. Moreover, there is no national initiative focused on raising the empathy and compassion level that children can recognize.
Significant research has shown that children who have pets are more likely to understand empathy and compassion. To help children develop empathetic and compassionate behaviors, NoSchoolViolence is in the planning stages of developing a social media website in which children can share their pets. The site would allow them to upload videos and photographs and tax content that could be shared with other children around the world with the hope that thousands of connections will reinforce the compassion and empathy that children have for their pets.
NoSchoolViolence seeking the help of veterinarians, pre-vet majors, and animal behaviorists (occupational as well as students) to help us better understand how we might go about this process. We will need volunteers for maybe three hours to discuss the project.
