PMMC is partnering with non-profit organizations that serve children who have difficult backgrounds which are ‘at risk’ for either not finishing school or falling into drug abuse and crime. The program will provide an enriching and empowering experience that exposes children to the world of Rescue/Rehab work and STEM concepts. The program will not only teach them about marine mammals, the importance of environmental stewardship and service, but also that it is possible to obtain a successful and fulfilling career by staying in school. Observing the animals and hearing their success stories will provide a sense of hope that adversity can be overcome. This program will be aligned with NGSS standards and include math, science and literacy concepts.
