Metro Adventures

Metro Adventures teaches students to navigate the city by foot, bus, and train independently, confidently, and safely.  Students will learn the city grid and how to read maps and schedules. By the end of the year, students will travel as a group and go on assigned, fun adventures without an adult.  They will also learn how to manage situations such as what to do if the whole group doesn’t get on the bus together, or what do you do if you get off at the wrong metro stop. While the students are allowed to have their cell phones on them, they will learn how to navigate mostly without them (cell phones can die, break, or lose connection under ground).  The final, independent adventures will be something like, go get ice cream at Ben and Jerry's, or go to the library and check out a book, or go to the Portrait Gallery to look at Ida B. Wells' portrait, etc.  Parents will meet the group at their destination for pickup (or if it is a round trip, the students will come back to the original meeting place for pick up). 

When: 2- 3 Mondays per month, 11:00 a.m. (The time is flexible depending on availability of families that are interested.) 

Where: Meeting locations will vary.

Cost: $650 for the entire year.

Age: 12 - 15 years old.
