The Seeds have worked very hard this year and have had the support of many Adult Allies.  The personality of both the Seeds and the Adult Allies is helping give this program shape.  As part of our First Niagara Mentoring Grant, we are planning a day trip in the last week of June to the Harriet Tubman Home in Auburn, and the Women’s Rights Museum in Seneca Falls.  Each Seed is responsible for bringing at least one peer from their school to utilize their mentoring skills.  The day will be packed with history of African Americans pre and post slavery, and women pre and post the Suffragist Movement.  As we move from Auburn to Seneca Falls, we will be looking at the intersection of race and gender.

Registration for camp is currently closed, and program administrators are in the selection process.  In order to continue developing the sustainability of this program, we are planning on providing an intensive facilitator training for our Seeds who attended camp last year.  The hope is to do this training at camp while the new Seeds are participating in dialogue.  When the Seeds return to school in the fall, the facilitators will be leading dialogue in their school for current and potential Seeds.  This is a way of continuing the dialogue started at camp, and to draw in new students who are interested in getting involved.
