Sewanee and Yale Collaborations

Discover Together logo

 

Every community is rich with unique people, places, stories and dreams...

to be discovered together.

 

A unique collaborative effort of Scholastic, Yale, Sewanee, and local community partners, Discover Together is a community engagement program that proposes to increase child and family resilience and social and community connectedness through intentional activities and a literacy-based curriculum. Stories and narratives, with their power to bring people together, are a key component of this program that celebrates local people and places. The program targets two- to three-generation impact, changing perceptions and focusing on early childhood and school age child/family support and involvement through an innovative and sustainable community-collaboration approach.
