Dawn is currently working with Hawthorne Valley Association and the Good Work Institute to co-design a new place-based learning program and design the curriculum.
Place Corps is a yearlong, experiential learning program situated on an 800-acre biodynamic farm in the Hudson Valley of NY, that supports 18-25 year olds as they cultivate a calling to know, love and serve their places. Participants explore the region as a living classroom and dynamic template of “place."
Over the course of the year, they self-design unique, college-accredited study plans, engage with accomplished practitioners working at the forefront of social, ecological, and economic regeneration, and develop the skills and wisdom needed to live and work in ways that make their lives, their communities, and the Earth truly thrive.
Place Corps launches in 2019.
