Similarly to our academic year, we engage our students in workshops, activities, field trips, etc – both academic and recreational. The theme of our program this summer is “Power in Partners” and we intent to create a curriculum that will allow the students to consider the ways in which partnerships and collaboration can be beneficial to them in  variety of aspects of their life.

Liberty Partnership Rising Star Program in Albany over the summer who may be interested in participating to receive credit? Program will be about 20 hours a week, and will require staff to be available between 10 – 3 between June 12 – June 23 for training; 10-3 between June 26 – 30 for program preparation; and 12:30 – 5:00 beginning July 5.

Don’t worry about the noise

Don’t worry about the water

Don’t worry about the wind—

If you are going out

beware of mangoes

And all such beautiful

sweet things.
