Our LEADERS continued their team building and leadership development at an overnight program in January 2014. The kids were given an introduction to Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) programs by college students and then through hands-on activities. The team work was out of this world! They had regular old sleepover fun, with movies and popcorn, with some surprises thrown in, including releasing a wish lantern. They met a police officer who has pledged support for our summer program and a representative from the Miami Dolphins who really connected with our kids. They talked about what it's like to have an incarcerated parent and why this program is important. Oh, and everyone received a sleeping bag, a novelty to most of the kids!
Thanks to all our partners for such a fun activity that our kids will remember for a long time!
