About This Project:
The NAFI NY region would like to select 3 youth from our region to participate in a (4) week cross-country road trip. Youth will be selected by April 2016. The months of May and June will be devoted to a weekly seminar with the participating youth to teach them about the history and geography of the locations we will be visiting, basic wilderness survival skills and culture. In addition to the before mentioned skills this project will provide youth with an opportunity to learn or enhance independent living skills such as budgeting, cooking, team building, socialization and problem solving skills.
During the road trip we will be asking the youth to keep a video diary which will provide the content for a reflective post trip group. The entire trip will be documented on video with the hopes of producing a DVD of the trip for each youth that participates. Upon returning from the trip the youth will also participate in editing the video and planning an event to display the video for their parents, foster parents, community partners and funders.
Total estimated costs, excluding in-kind support, are approximately $15,000.00. This includes a $2000.00 cushion for an emergency return. We are requesting $2000.00 from NAFI’s Arts Initiative, a grant fund available to all NAFI programs to encourage the use of arts. NAFI NY has formed and fund raising committee with the intentions of youth and staff involved in the project holding fund raising events to help support the cost of the trip.
