Reviews for Outright Vermont
I had never heard of Outright until I was asked to join one of the relay teams for the Burlington City Marathon to raise money for the organization. After I joined the team, I met so many wonderful volunteers and board members and some of the youth the group serves. Outright and its volunteers do so much for the community of Burlington. It is a positive, safe place to be.
