Project: Spark, Building Twentyone’s Summer Program a great success. We had 7 students participating for 5 weeks from June through July. Teens had the chance to participate in a variety of activities. These activities included Artistic Crossfit, where teens learned about functional movement, nutrition, along with weight lifting and endurance training. Students were encouraged and had great conversations with local entrepreneurs, including our very own board member Don Waskiewicz of Deep Blue Insights, Margaret Ross from Margaret Ross Jewelry, Kurt Norgaard from Automate Precision Engineering (Custom CNC Machine Development) and Jesse Flores from Cognite Labs, Software Solutions Company.
Students were also encouraged by reading portions of “Success for Teens” where they learned that the little things matter. Also included over the summer programming was angler techniques with Don Waskiewicz, cooking with Momma and Alyona Troitsky, boating in our lake, and even a couple trips for ice cream.
It was a great summer, and we’re looking forward to see many teens returning in the fall for our all new programming and special events. Check our calendar and continue to check out our website for updated information.
