THE STORY:

Please help us send MEL's 6th grade class on Crew Orientation, an important character-building retreat in upstate New York, by making a donation!

The Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School (MELS), "A School for A Sustainable City," is located in Forest Hills, Queens and offers its students a rigorous college preparatory program, with particular emphasis on science, technology, and sustainability. The school serves students from all over District 28, including Forest Hills and Jamaica, and 53% of students come from economically disadvantaged families.

This May, its students will participate in Crew Orientation, a 5-day, overnight NYC Outward Bound Schools backpacking expedition in upstate New York. The trip will help MELS's new students develop community, trust, communication skills, and the determination to do far more than they ever thought possible. The Crew Orientation Course is designed to help students learn the value of teamwork, responsibility, perseverance, and other qualities that they need for success in school and elsewhere, while they build caring, trusting relationships with their teachers and other students.
