Oberlin Diaries 4: Risk and Its Rewards
You never know. For some, the phrase invokes paralyzing fear. For me, it presents a motivating challenge. When the Foresight Prep @ Oberlin College summer program was launched four years ago, part of the fun was seeing if we could do it: Create a best-of-class experiential education program that empowered highly-diverse, sustainability-minded teenage leaders. Participants arrive never completely knowing what to expect; we teachers are never certain what our students will be like. We navigate the unknown together, forging community, knowledge and connections that in many cases far outlast the two-week seminars. Such experiences are essential for a more vibrant and resilient future. Growth and change require assuming risk, be it traveling away from home for the first time, or garnering the requisite scholarship resources to support the economically and racially diverse student body that is the program’s foundation. Due to robust demand this year, Foresight needs to raise $20K by August to cover these costs. I would rather assume this challenge than turn away passionate, engaged and highly qualified students who otherwise couldn’t afford to attend. It only takes a minute to make a one-time, or monthly, tax-deductible donation at: Is it worth it? I’d invite you to read some of this year's weekly e-postcards posted on the program’s homepage. Each of our students embraced uncertainty, courageously grasping the opportunity to positively inflect their trajectories and, quite possibly, ours. Because, you never know.
