VISIONS Spotlighted by

The New York Times

VISIONS, and specifically our Montana Blackfeet program, was recently spotlighted by the New York Times in their article about summer programs that teach empathy. Read the NYT excerpt about VISIONS below…

Deep Immersion in Cultures at Home and Abroad:

Visions is a 30-year veteran of service adventures, their itineraries veering more hard-core immersion (five to seven hours a day, four to five days a week) than in-and-out tour. A longstanding program on offering poverty assistance on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana also focuses on land preservation and infrastructure projects, like building renovations, fence repairs, building wheelchair ramps and schoolhouses. When not working on improving the community, volunteers also enjoy a bounty of cultural activities like attending a powwow, joining in sweat ceremonies, horse riding in Glacier National Park, and connecting with tribal historians and spiritual leaders.
