Inspired to Shine: TD Charitable Foundation awards theater-based education grant to Brattleboro Retreat


first_imgTD Bank,The TD Charitable Foundation has awarded a grant for academic programming to the Brattleboro Retreat, the nonprofit psychiatric hospital announced this week. The $13,500 grant will underwrite the Inspired to Shine program, a theater-based academic program for children and youth enrolled in the Meadows EducationalCenter, a K-12 Vermont approved school located on the Brattleboro Retreat campus.‘We are honored to receive support from TD Bank, through the TD Charitable Foundation, for this innovative program,’ said Brattleboro Retreat’s President and CEO, Robert Simpson. ‘Inspired to Shine combines substantive academic material with the exceptional clinical care that is the trademark of the Brattleboro Retreat.’Piloted in the summer of 2011, Inspired to Shine ties a theater-based project in with core classroom subjects in order to help participating students improve educational outcomes, develop self-esteem, and build interpersonal skills. Students from the Retreat’s alternative therapeutic day school program, the Brattleboro Retreat Individually Developed & Guided Education Services (BRIDGES), as well as Meadows School residential patients participatetogether in the program.In the pilot session, students read several different Shakespeare works and ‘ under the direction of a theater teacher ‘ created a dramatic performance using a ‘newscast’ format to highlight various Shakespeare plots. The themes were embedded into all of the students’ core subjects: students read Shakespeare scripts forEnglish, studied the time period for history, used ancient architecture for math, and created set designs for art.‘The successful pilot session of Inspired to Shine was a rewarding and memorable experience for our students, our school staff, and the Retreat employees who served as our audience,’ said BRIDGES Coordinator Jessica Shepley. ‘We have found that success in reaching our students, many of whom have struggled in school–and helping them absorb academic material–lies in moving away from the traditional classroom setting and engaging them in hands-on, activity-based programming. Inspired to Shine exemplifies this approach,’ continued Shepley. ‘We are so grateful for TD Bank’s support and we are looking forward to continuing the program in 2012.’The Brattleboro Retreat, founded in 1834, is a not-for-profit, regional specialty psychiatric hospital and addictions treatment center, providing a full range of diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitation services for individuals of all ages and their families.
