The Dearborn STEP Program was recently awarded a  $700.00 grant from the Target Field Trip Grant Program.  

The grant funds will be used for an adventure-based field trip. Come the spring staff and students will board a bus bound for Project Adventure Ropes Course in Beverly, MA.  

The field trip gives teachers group exercises to reinforce students' self-worth, encourage individual growth and stress respect for each other in a fun and challenging environment. The ropes course itself is both physically and mentally challenging. It demands intense focus, effective communication and team work from the group of students as they defy the challenges presented to them.  At the end of the day the students leave with a sense of accomplishment and camaraderie.
