Creative lives has formed strategic partnerships with:


White River Elementary School
(Creative Lives Afterschool Program site)

The water catchment project with 5th graders is a direct result of our work to establish a beautiful community garden behind the school. Karen Ganey, our outreach and restorative ecology director, helped lead 5th graders in designing a way to keep the garden quenched! 

White River Budokan
Colin Treem and Kevin Comeau lead this martial arts dojo that emphasizes self-awareness and self-mastery over combat. With a grant from the United Way, our students were able to participate in training three afternoons each week during the 2018-19 school year. With significant results for students, we seek to expand this partnership in 2019-20.

The Family Place in Norwich, VT (co-sponsoring “Adventures in Parenting”)
