Morning Dove's newest program Lead Changes, serves the at-risk community in an EFL group format, including youth and addiction rehabilitation. The program was developed in 2017 as an innovative Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL) program using the proven benefits of the animal-human bond.

This program is intended to build:

  • confidence

  • respect

  • positive self-esteem

  • trust

Lead Changes is offered to at-risk youth in partnership with elementary and middle schools in the greater Indianapolis community, including Marion, Boone, Hamilton and Hendricks counties.  If you or your school would like to learn more about this program, please contact us!


The Lead Changes curriculum is directly linked to 21st Century Learning skills:

  • creativity and innovation

  • critical thinking and problem solving

  • communication

  • collaboration

This assures the impact can be extended into the classroom and ultimately into the children's daily lives. 

Lead Changes has also been adapted and expanded to address the unique challenges faced by adults in addiction recovery, as well as adults adapting to post-traumatic events. Using equine EFL activities to teach and reinforce positive relationships and behaviors, the program is designed for adults (versus our youth program). Our ultimate goal is for the participants to increase self-confidence, improve communication, compassion, empathy, self-discipline and improve engagement in their lives and community.

Lead Changes is offered in partnership with hospital-based programs, and community organizations in the greater Indianapolis community.  If your organization would like to learn more about this program, please contact us!
