The Tutorial Center has recently received a $75,000 grant from the Vermont Dept. of Labor to support our YAP! 2013 Summer Work & Learn program. Summer Work & Learn is an active, hands-on, 8-week summer experience in which youth ages 16-21 build work skills, develop personal and interpersonal skills, and gain work experience by creating and tending food gardens, completing community gardening projects, donating food to the needy through community organizations such as Meals on Wheels, and selling food at farmers’ markets. Youth work crews for the summer of 2013 will be formed in Bennington, Manchester, and for the first time in Danby, Vt.
