“I Like It Better Here”

We accept new students at YouthWork and Learn throughout the year.  Here’s what our latest student says about his first days with us:

“My first two weeks at Smokey House were exciting.

IMG_0052Monday, we completed work on the workbench. I did sanding, polyurethane, and built the shelf.

 

IMG_0136On Wednesday, Robin taught us how to do chip carving.   We did the map of New England on the pond.  We measured the lines on ice, drew them with sticks, and covered them with fire ash.  Friday, we made boxes out of pine and we cut down little trees to make wood mauls.

IMG_0197On Monday, we went rock climbing at the Green Mountain Climbing Center in Rutland. It was pretty good.  I want to go back.  The only thing I hated about it was the shoes, because they’re so tight, they’re uncomfortable.   We went to Subway for lunch.

 

Today,  Lucas made chicken cordon bleu, and it was amazing!  We did more decorations on the boxes, and some people made wood mauls.IMG_0214

 

My old school was pretty boring.  This school is hands-on projects and learning. I like it better here.”

“The Tutorial Center has been wonderful. It was just what our sons needed to build their confidence in the the subject they liked least. The teachers are very professional and think ‘outside the box’ in order to meet the needs of each individual student.”
