the project

Minor Miracles saw the potential benefits of quality expeditionary and experiential based programs. To provide such a curriculum for the youth of Astoria and Long Island City, Minor Miracles developed programs patterned after Outward Bounds Expeditionary Learning models and its increased culture competency. In the seven-years since its inception, our enrichment programs have gained a positive reputation for providing constructive activities that contribute to reducing at-risk behaviors; improving critical thinking skills; cultivating and nurturing natural gifts and talents; expanding appreciation and tolerance for diverse cultures, traditions, histories, values, and beliefs; increasing academic performance; and providing life skills to ensure success in school, in the community, and in life.  For example, Expeditionary Learning is a teaching model that emphasizes knowledge acquisition through subject/content exploration; experiential activities; field trips; and group projects in a high-tech customized mobile learning environment.
