DREAM Sailing Program: Four Years of Fun in the Maine Sun!

Wed, 2015-09-09 16:06 -- aek

For the fourth year in a row, DREAM staff took several teens to Maine for a week of living on a sailboat and learning the ropes (pun intended) of sailing in the ocean. Captain John Reid once again manned the helm, and we are grateful for his generosity in spearheading these trips and providing the boat and instruction, but most of all opening his heart to DREAMers and exhibiting an extreme degree of patience!

This summer, we were honored to have a Lowell Richards Fellow, Terra Richards, join us in our Boston office. Lowell Richards was a great friend of DREAM and after his passing, his passion for mentoring lives on. The fellowship provided important support to DREAM youth during a period of the year when there are few structured enrichment opportunities. Terra provided critical programming and opportunities for adventure and growth to youth in each of our six Boston neighborhoods.
