Youth Programs

Paws of War education engagement is aimed at character development in our nation’s youth. A critical part of what we do, is to share stories of our veterans & their dogs that inspire young people, and motivate them to be their best selves. Our Character Development Program will provide students with opportunities to explore the concepts of courage, patriotism, sacrifice, integrity and humility, and how these values can be exemplified in daily life. 

Here's just a small sampling of the character development events!
