Friday Programming with Children • • • •

Mentors picked up their mentees at Riverside and headed to Oakledge park for a day of barbecuing and games. Poor weather stopped the mentors from taking the kids for a hike at Mt. Philo and instead they played games at the Burlington Waterfront. Kids and mentors went apple crazy at Shelburne Orchards! The Riverside program mixed fun with functional by splitting the kids up to do Zumba and discuss the rules and expectations for this year of DREAM mentoring
