The Urban Farm, together with the Mile High Youth Corp Outreach Team,
provided programming to elementary students of the Aurora summer and after school COMPASS
program this year. With the help of 5 to 6 MHYC leaders and their enthusiasm, we were able to reach 20 children in the COMPASS program each week. This partnership allowed three different groups to learn together about the farm and about each other.
Mile High Youth Corp helped to teach the COMPASS children about our animals, and an accompanying activity or animal craft of the day helped to further the connections and learning that was occurring. The experience helped both MHYC and COMPASS to learn about the farm with its different animals, how to handle the animals and care for them, and the different breeds and names of our four legged and feathered friends, ie. sheep, goats, cattle, ducks, chickens, rabbits, and horses.
