Upcoming Trips

Transforming what Justice might look like: Learning from NYC

Date: 
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 to Sunday, June 30, 2019

Transforming Justice

 

This crew will learn the landscape of our criminal justice system, both nationally and in Vermont. We will learn from and hold visioning sessions with people who have experienced the system first-hand, in order to learn what might be different, philosophically and practically. We will travel to NYC to learn many different inspiring models that are working towards a more just and humane criminal-incarceration system. We will attend the Credible Messenger Center Conference.

 

Participants in this project will participate in informing, supporting and ushering targeted initiatives and campaigns throughout the upcoming year, here in Vermont.

Future Paths: Open Road - Collaboration with Vermont Folklife Center

Date: 
Monday, July 22, 2019 to Friday, July 26, 2019

We will share a home for one week in the Green Mountains for an immersive, experiential learning program that will lead students in an exploration of the life-works and working lives of Vermonters. Learning the stories of others help orient our own fears, passions and potential directions. We believe that deep listening and reflection are cornerstones of self-discovery. To this end, students can expect to leave the program with both their outer and inner horizons broadened and with a newfound confidence to envision a future of their own making.

 

 

This is in partnership with Vermont Folklife Center

 

Tiny House Community

Date: 
Saturday, August 3, 2019 to Sunday, August 18, 2019

Tiny House Communities - Affordable housing for people in need

 

We will tour successful tiny house communities that are intentionally designed for people in need. These communities have been built and supported, by residents and townspeople, in order to reduce the housing insecurity that is surging all over our country.This tour will take us across the U.S. - from Syracuse, Detroit, Washington and Oregon, and back!

This will most certainly involve our crew traveling by train and car. We are currently researching and planning the best use of time for this trip. Stay posted!

 

Key to this project is our mission to help usher these types of project here in Vermont. There are 2 counties currently considering these type proposals.

With our first-hand knowledge, We'll help make this happen when we return!
