Review for FIVE TOWN COMMUNITIES THAT CARE, Rockport, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After school in downtown Camden I see middle school kids I knew as kindergartners and in early grade school. The expressions on their faces are beginning to harden ... they look bored, alienated, almost disgusted. Those are not the expressions I see on the kids in the afternoon programs at STAR ... they are enthusiastic, happy, interested, engaged. What makes the difference is they have not been abandoned by the grown-ups around them. They are treated with respect yes, but still guided by grown-ups interested in sharing new skills and new experiences. So they stay oriented and part of life, not disoriented and sidelined.
