Abenaki Outreach Program

Program Introduction

The University of Vermont and the Abenaki community have had a long-standing partnership since 1985 through the design of a program known as the “Summer Happening Program”. This program brings high school students to the University for two days to experience on campus life and bring the possibility of a college education as a realistic option for these students. UVM's Abenaki Summer Happening Program is held each summer that focuses on empowering Abenaki students to take pride in their native heritage, while exposing them to the academic rigor of college with scholarly lectures and activities. The program offers the students opportunities to establish relationships, and provides support to seek post-secondary education.
