Vermont Business Magazine Community Bank NA recently presented King Street Center in Burlington with a $5,000 donation to support the organization’s summer teen programming. The funds will help cover the cost of daily meals, tutoring and various adventures. King Street Center’s Teen Futures program provides middle and high school youth with the opportunity to develop their interests and learn new skills. The program includes several core components that focus on academic success, healthy lifestyle choices and job readiness training. These activities are balanced with daily opportunities for sports, games, field trips and more.
“We’re deeply grateful to Community Bank N.A. for their generous support of our summer program,” King Street Center Executive Director Vicky Smith said. “Their sponsorship will help us to meet our mission by fostering a rich youth-supporting culture through teens’ engagement in varied experiential learning, including our popular King Street Lemonade Stand on Burlington’s Church Street Marketplace.”
