The Putnam Gardens DREAM Update November 2012 With the semester winding down and Thanksgiving Break this month, the mentors held three engaging afternoons of activities! DREAM Programming:  11/2 (8 mentees, 6 mentors): The mentors and mentees explored campus and played games on the chalkboards in a classroom.  11/9 (7 mentees, 7 mentors): The group decided to take advantage of the $1 admission on Fridays at the Children’s Museum. Matches had a great time exploring the museum together.  11/16 (9 mentees, 8 mentors): The mentors taught the youth how to make buckeyes (peanut butter + chocolate dessert). They turned out great and everyone got to have little desert before going home for dinner. Program Development:  Making-up missed programming: The Harvard mentors continue to do an outstanding job programming with their mentees outside of DREAM Fridays if they are unable to make programming that week.  Becoming part of the college: The mentors continued to work on the application for becoming a student organization through the Public Service Network.  Culminating Experience: The mentors are planning on holding their annual potluck dinner and talent show in the community on Saturday December 8th. Each match will cook a dish together to bring to the dinner. DREAM Office:  College Affordability Training: I attended a training facilitated by U-Aspire to educate youth-serving organizations about the complexity of college admission and how to better to assist youth through the process.  Massachusetts Promise Fellowship (MPF) Pass the Wagon: The DREAM Office staff attended MPF’s Pass the Wagon event at Northeastern on November 30th to support the great work that MPF does around the state Keep DREAMing!
