VISIONS Spotlighted:

New York Times

VISIONS, and specifically our Montana Blackfeet program, was spotlighted by the New York Times earlier this week in their article about summer programs that teach empathy. The print copy will appear in the newspaper on Sunday, July 8, 2018. Read the New York Times excerpt 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.
