Conclusion to the September Series.

WE DID IT! We have made it through the first series of Dream Outside the Box! The September series, The Language of Learning, allowed the children at the Boys and Girls Club of Columbia to learn new activities and broaden their vernacular by learning new languages. To end the series, the children learned all about the competitive sport of fencing, while incorporating the Spanish language into the skill. They were visited by Center Stage, a dance group from the University of Missouri, to learn new dance moves. They were even visited by Mizzou Forte, a co-ed a cappella singing group from MU. The children also got to meet the men of the Columbia College Cougars basketball team to discuss their dreams and goals. It was so successful, and we would like to thank all of the organizations and volunteers that made this possible. Special thanks to the Boys and Girls Club of Columbia for allowing us to show these children what else is possible. Until the next series....
