Franklin Grand Isle Bookmobile

Story Enchantment All Year

Story Enchantment All Year (SEAY) addresses the need for high-quality childcare by delivering professional development opportunities for the early childcare workforce by extending our visits and targeting content for child care professionals. With each bookmobile visit, SEAY provides book/material loans for everyone, free professional development, and story times with evidence-based extension activities for children 0-5. By focusing on social-emotional skill development, SEAY builds trauma-informed services that will reduce the impacts of adverse childhood experiences and increase kindergarten readiness in social and emotional learning.

Vermont Humanities Council

Vermont Humanities Camps are week-long summer day programs that engage at-risk middle school students in fun, rewarding educational activities. Held at approximately 14 middle schools each summer, they are run by two teachers at each school who recruit students that may struggle with reading or learning in a traditional classroom. Students rave about the camps; they are, for some students, their first positive interaction with reading, school, and perhaps with learning itself. Not only do the camps strengthen reading and self-expression, they also change students’ attitudes dramatically about reading, learning, school, and self-identification as learners.  The camps are free for parents and provide food for students.
