Expansion of Dreamers model to rural and urban partners- In our work on Big Ugly Creek, the most resource challenged tract of Lincoln County, we found that we frequently had more in common with other geographically, politically and economically isolated communities than our more affluent neighbors living just down the road. We formed alliances to learn best practices in children and family programs, parent and youth leadership, and community development. We were also awarded a rare direct grant from the Corporation for National Service that has allowed us to place 20 VISTAs with partners each year.
We have focused our commitments to communities of great need and opportunity in the coalfields including Big Ugly Creek and Harts in Lincoln County and Omar and Man/Buffalo Creek in Logan County. We are building capacity in community education through increased training of enrichment leaders in our after school programs and establishing and annual Experiential Education Fair to hold up best practices.
