Support DREAM and Everybody Wins! at the 2019 Delta Dental Race to the Top of Vermont

Where: Stowe Mountain Resort
When: 7:30 am – 2:00 pm
 

Every August, teams from Everybody Wins! Vermont and The DREAM Program made up of board members, staff, mentors, families, and friends join the Catamount Trail Association’s Race to the Top of Vermont.  They run, hike, or mountain bike up the toll road on Vermont’s highest mountain to support their youth mentoring programs around the state.

The Mount Mansfield Toll Road gains 2,564 feet of elevation in 4.3 miles. It’s not an easy climb, whether you’re racing for a personal best, or hiking to reach the summit. Everybody Wins! Vermont and DREAM supporters climb the mountain to challenge themselves, and to bring the day closer when every Vermont youth who wants a mentor has one. Please help them climb the mountain and make a brighter future for Vermont’s young people!

Make a Donation to Support the Everybody Wins! Vermont Team or make a contribution to The DREAM Program Team anytime before the event and come in person to cheer them on!

Collaborative Mentoring Webinar: Mentoring To and Through College

Where: Register HERE
When: 1:00 – 2:15 pm
Cost: FREE

Not only can applying and getting to college be a daunting endeavor, but also navigating the higher education system, once you are there, can be an even more overwhelming and mystifying experience, especially for young people whose families never attended college. Programs that mentor students to and through college can make a big impact. From learning about funding opportunities through scholarships and federal funding to forming the networks to build their social capital and navigate those on-campus supports, these can all serve to better the college experience and increase persistence. This webinar will focus on the ways mentoring programs and mentors can support youth as they transition to and through college.
