Dis-connecting in Vermont! Summer Tings

This summer, we were able to hire 3 summer youth employment participants to support our trauma informed summer program. We also curated safe spaces for 31 youth participants. The highlight of our summer was taking 17 of those participants on a weeklong trip to Vermont to disconnect and learn how to be one with nature! During this trip, we learned how to identify plants for food and medicine, pitch tents, build a fire pit, and start a fire. We were also able to ride horses and learn about land cultivation and stewardship! We were able to come together as a community and our youth participants learned how to give compliments by participating in an appreciation circle.
