During three sessions over three weeks of the out of school summer program, Ms. Meghann came and volunteered her time to teach youth square dancing. We learned line dancing, the Virginia Reel, and square dancing. The kids truly loved learning with Ms. Meghann, who took time at the beginning and end of each session to teach the youth about mindfulness and compassion. Staffer Ashley Friedrich said she loved learning too!
This summer not only did out of school students have fun at Youth Build, they also took a couple field trips. One was with PAL Coalition students to Bernheim Forest. It was amazing! Bernheim funded us to do the Wilson Creek exploration, where we walked a trail to a creek to catch crawfish. Staff there gave us lessons about the origination of their forest, and then we got to explore the other parts of Bernheim. We got to play kickball after lunch and to walk out on the Tree Canopy. It was a great day with great people!
