Educational ProgRAMMING

The Philly Goat Project offers unique ways for students of all ages and abilities to get excited about learning concepts related to science, nature, history, and the environment. Our goats make learning fun and hands-on, whether students visit us live or via Zoom, or if we visit you! Additionally, we have exceptional experience in working with the disabilities community, therefore enhancing goals that focus on social emotional wellness, self-regulation, communication, and fine and gross motor skills that can be incorporated during a school visit. PGP’s teams have provided educational services for hundreds of students throughout the region creating delight and lifelong friendships. Some of our school partners have included The Philadelphia School District, HMS School, Widener Memorial School, PA School for the Deaf, Germantown Friends, Friends Select and Penn Charter Schools. 


Educational programs (including special educational programming) and field trips can be arranged for most large or small groups at the farm, at your location, or virtually.  Prices vary depending on age and needs of the students. Please contact us to discuss your unique needs. Farm visits are limited to 40 students at one time.


Teen Internship Program

PGP works with mature teens ages 12-16 who live near the farm, partnering with teachers and students to help foster job skills while learning to take care of the goats and work with their hands. Teachers volunteer their time to train interns. Attendance is weekly on Saturday mornings during the Fall and Winter,  twice a week in the Spring and three mornings a week in the Summer.  Students who demonstrate good work and interpersonal skills are eligible to be paid for jobs within PGP’s programs. PGP’s goal is for interns to develop job readiness skills, build their resumes, foster lasting connections to mentors within the community, and to share this with their own families.


Our internships give preference to working with middle schoolers because they are at a critical age for developing self-confidence. By fostering their confidence and abilities to become empathetic, creative, capable leaders, we are able to invest in their future and the future of our community. PGP requests that a family member participate in a PGP event monthly with their intern to best support their growth and allow them to “show off” their skills. Admission is rolling, please submit an email of inquiry to

Environmental Education Partnership
PGP partners with Lets Go Outdoors to explore the importance of our local waterways and their impact on environmental health. All trail walks are, of course, accompanied by our goats.
Wellness for education
Self-care is a critical component of a successful academic journey and our goats are here to support students' wellness! Our goats visit local colleges and universities to assist in guided meditation walks or to simply provide some stress relieving snuggles.
storybook walks

PGP celebrates and promotes literacy by providing community and library focused storybook walks and live storybook readings with the goats in partnership with the Free Library of Philadelphia. Walk a goat and read a story together with a favorite person. Who knew reading could be so much fun?
