Project Adventure and Schooner Adventure Receive Cape Ann Community Foundation Grant

Two Local Non-Profit Organizations Founded with Goals of Building Sustainable Learning Communities Come Together with the Cape Ann Community Foundation Grant GLOUCESTER, Mass., June 18, 2018 – Project Adventure out of Beverly, MA and the Schooner Adventure out of Gloucester, MA have been developing quality youth programming, founded in providing transferable leadership skills to youth that will help build their neighborhoods and learning communities. With this grant, they plan to combine their resources and create a program that is both on land and sea and support the current and future Cape Ann workforce by instilling real-world leadership skills in the youth of the local area.  Both of these organizations believe that change is necessary for growth to take place and that change also comes from a leader who has an inspiring vision of the future, motivates people to act on that vision, and coaches them so there is not just one leader, but a group of leaders intent on achieving that vision. Project Adventure and the Schooner Adventure plan to create a leadership program that encourages middle and high school aged students to step out of their comfort zones and stretch into a place where they become the role model and make a difference in their communities. “We are excited to be part of this collaborative effort with Project Adventure,” stated the Executive Director at Schooner Adventure, Stefan Edick. “I believe that by sharing platforms and resources we can better benefit the community. Like Project Adventure, we offer a place for learning where young people find the strength they had not expected.” By providing an experience that takes students on land and sea, they will apply their skills to each situation and come to understand the different roles they can play as a member of a group. Richard Ross, the Executive Director at Project Adventure, believes that “it is our goal to provide students with an experience that allows them to be a leader at any level and to realize that providing leadership is not forcing a group to follow orders, but to create an environment of shared responsibility. We have been working with the Schooner Adventure staff to think of innovative ways to collaborate on projects that would allow youth to take part in a new experience, and this grant will help us start what we had envisioned.” Pictured above from left to right:Bruce Feldman, Norie Mozzone, Stefan Edick, Ruth Pino, Richard Ross, Ashley Corcoran, Pat Slade

Social and Emotional Learning Symposium

​Bringing Leaders in SEL Together

Thank You, Donors!

             30 April 2018 This past Saturday, we celebrated our donors by hosting a day on the course so they could have a first-hand experience of the positive change we hope to bring to schools, youth-serving organizations, and neighborhoods in the area. The days leading up to Saturday were cold, rainy, and nothing that resembled spring, but Mother Nature must have known that we were having visitors on Moraine Farm because she cleared the skies and brought out the sun. Thanks to our trainers, Greg Urban, Camille Oosterman, Austin Paulson, and MB Buckner, our donors, friends, and family all had a wonderful time balancing on the Catwalk, climbing to new heights and smashing personal records on the Vertical Playpen, and flying across our field on the Zip Line. Whether our donors climbed or remained firmly on the ground as the photographer, their smiles could be seen from the time they stepped foot on our course until well after they left. We truly enjoy inviting folks to experience what we get to see every day. The students and adults walk away from our time together with a new perspective on their work and role in their communities and we want to share that with everyone who helps make it all happen. Thank you to all of our donors who choose to share our work with their communities. We know that real change comes from experience, and we can be that experience with your help.
