Whole child education includes field trips.
Dreamers and program coordinators had a fun-filled weekend in the snow! During the weekend spent together, the Dreamers and staff were able to get better acquainted with one another, especially since the program coordinators invited some of the new Dreamers who were sponsored last year. Everyone enjoyed the tour of the Sequoia Museum, the hike to see the world’s largest tree, the General Sherman Tree, and the endless snow ball fights among Dreamers and staff.
Whole Child Education has many aspects to it. Especially for the children that I Have a Dream Foundation Los Angeles adopts, who come from under-served communities in Los Angeles, the whole child must be addressed. Education is important but so is creating relationships that build trust, activities that build confidence and more.
