It has been a productive and busy winter for Bright Futures’ students. With Park City offering opportunities as diverse as they are unique, the teens have taken in enriching recreational and creative endeavors.
Students were able to attend two inspirational Sundance Film Festival movies: Dolores and Step – both courtesy of the Sundance Institute. Both films showcase the importance of diversity and minorities in America, as well as putting emphasis on being true to oneself. Audiences felt energized and empowered by the message of these documentaries.
In addition, the group just completed five lessons in skiing and snowboarding, thanks to SOS Outreach and their partnership with Park City Mountain. Our first-generation college students continue to engage in winter activities at the resort thanks to their season passes, courtesy of Vail Resorts.
To round up a complete winter of experiences, the students heard from Golden Harper, founder of the running shoe company Altra. The focus of the chat was on the benefits of exercise and active lifestyles, and as a bonus, they all received a new pair of running shoes.
Thanks to the Park City Education Foundation and the Park City School District for leading this worthy endeavor.
