Pine Meadow/John Graham DREAM Monthly Snapshot February 2014 Program Happenings and Highlights 

Teens from all over Vermont gathered at Bolton Valley Nordic Center for a day of cross-country skiing. DREAM teamed up with Catamount Trail Association, whose AmeriCorps member Emily Licht instructed mentors and mentees and led some fun (and very difficult) rounds of sharks and minnows. All 27 teens decided to explore Bolton’s Nordic trails, where they worked together to navigate the rough terrain. This month Middlebury college students returned from their break and back to DREAM!

Participants Mentees Total: 16 Females: 7 Males: 9

Mentors Total: 17 Females: 12 Males: 5

Weekly Programming with Children  Two members of the Middlebury College Swing Dancing Club joined the group for a Friday of swing dancing and arts & crafts.  One Friday DREAMers joined the International Student Organization, who helped them make Bulgarian cookies and showed them a few short films about Bulgaria.
