Positive Youth Development Program
Our Positive Youth Development Program (PYD) strengthens and enhances the personal development of children and youth by providing pro-social, leadership and work/college-readiness skills through their experiences and interactions with horses. Our horses help instill hope and resilience in children and youth who have experienced difficult or traumatic situations. Some may have even been misplaced from their home environment. Small Miracles works with PYD students from schools, youth service agencies and court-appointed juvenile services. In 2014 Small Miracles served 228 students in our PYD Program equaling approximately 2,108 direct service hours.
