I am so pleased to report that things are picking up around here. I think this Roadtrip with Reason is actually going to happen! I always had faith but these days I am feeling especially positive about it. Over the next few months (prior to departure) I will be announcing some of the non-profit organizations that I will be hanging out with while I am on the road. Exciting. I have already learned oh-so-much from this experience and I haven't even left yet!
Speaking of learning, I would LOVE to officially announce my very first non-profit organization ... *drum roll please* ...
"For the Love of Learning, Inc is a not-for-profit empowerment and creativity-based learning program.
We are tutors, cheerleaders, motivators and instructors for Newfoundland and Labrador’s young adults (aged 15 – 35) who are using their skills and creativity to overcome social and/or economic obstacles.
Trained professionals offer free workshops, 12-6 daily, at our drop-in center. Class topics include Creative Writing, Theatre, Film, Art, Journalism, Yoga, Music and more. In addition to regular workshops, For the Love of Learning also develops and sponsors a variety of projects, including art exhibits, a professional newspaper for youth journalists, holiday cards, writing anthologies, career shadowing, stage plays and short films.
Find on-site a lending library, an open-arts studio, free Internet kiosks**, friendly and accepting people and, sometimes, even a hot meal. No dress code. No registration. No charge."
I highly suggest you take some time to check out an old issue of their newspaper "backBEAT" - it's pretty freakin' awesome!
Happy trails & travels,
