The LEAD (Liberty Equine Assisted Development) Program has a specific aim: to nurture the skill sets of at-risk youth that are currently limited. This is achieved through engaging activities where the youth lead horses individually or as a group. Each of these structured activities is not only enjoyable but also designed to enhance their employability skills. Among the various skills developed through these activities are communication, respect, setting boundaries, and teamwork.
Additionally, the program offers a chance for a farm internship, allowing the youth to gain valuable experience to bolster their resumes. This hands-on opportunity further contributes to their personal and professional growth.
