The Sababa Project is a Bennington College course taught on the campus of Mount Anthony Union High School. In a collaborative effort between Bennington College and two Mount Anthony Union High School programs (the Quantum Leap Exhibit Program and the Bridges Summer Transitional Program), the Sababa Project attempts to demystify the college experience while providing high school students with hands-on, real-world, academic experiences. The student body enrollment of this 14 week college course consists of both high school and college students. The syllabus for this course includes:
• How the youth of today are to gain a working understanding of the issues pertinent to their community.
• Ways that youth might be at risk (currently or in the future) due to issues of sustainability within their community.
• Resource allocation, resource management, resource availability, and resource quality within our community.
• Ways in which youth within our community can contribute to the health and well-being of their community. • Differences in experiences and outcomes of those living with limited resources and/or opportunities.
• Solutions and approaches that could assist modern day youth as they attempt to navigate their world.
