Alisal's "Dreams of NYC" take to the fields

More than 50 students from Alisal High's Dream Academy ventured into the fields in Soledad last week so they could experience what many of their family members and their community members have to go through on a daily basis.

The mission of the Alisal Dream Academy is to expose the students to enriching experiences to empower them. Though their work in the fields, Social Sciences Teacher Ruben Pizarro was hoping the students would better understand and empathize with their families and neighbors.

"We hope to ultimately change the way they see the world around them," Pizarro said.

This particular group of students is raising money to go to New York next year. The Alisal students are turning into such a traveling bunch!
