The Way of the Donkey
The Way of the Donkey uses miniature donkeys in empowerment activities with youth. Our program is grounded in research insight to support youth who have experienced trauma, are neurodiverse, or have other challenges.
Donkeys have traits that, if emulated, support happiness, resilience, and self regulation. The Way of the Donkey: Make positive connections. Reach out to be kind. Build your strengths. Be thankful. If things get tough… Stop and stay calm. Stand tall. Think things through.
While The Way of the Donkey wants to bring the joy of donkeys to everyone, our primary objective is to work with youth who have or experiencing challenges. This includes loss, trauma, neurodiversity and other disabilities, being bullied, and the like.
