2014 Dessert

Our 4th annual Dessert Auction in Washington County will be held this Friday, March 14 at 6pm at UMaine Machias’s Clipper Lounge.  All proceeds support our Washington County Passages Program for teen parents. 

 

Our Passages Program serves almost 50 Maine students who receive individualized instruction in their own homes.  Students focus on academics, parenting and life skills development, including budgeting, nutrition, child development, math, science, writing, social studies and more.  They also participate in group workshops on everything from play, music and early literacy to cooking, safety, technology, job skills and more.

 

Students also complete a final graduation project or “Passage” that addresses a  particular challenge or goal for that student.  Recent Passages projects have included researching nursing schools, writing a business plan, studying to become a vet tech, starting a photography blog, writing a cookbook for children with special development and dietary needs, and more.

 

Our graduates have had significant success in the workforce and in post-secondary education, and Friday night’s auction will help ensure our students are able to meet their graduation goals.

 

There’s no better excuse to indulge your sweet tooth than this!
