Using Blackstone Valley 101 In Conjunction With Youth Programs
Blackstone Valley 101 was originally conceived as program for adults. However, there are a number of ways in which it may be used with youths as well.
Scout Ranger Programs
Home School Families
If you think this may be a useful addition to your home school programming, please feel free to use it. We request that an adult in the family take the program first to determine if it is appropriate for your child's age group and abilities. If you choose to use it, each adult or child completing the program will be eligible for the certification pin.
Please note: We offer the program as an option to you, if you would like to use it. The program is not being offered as part of a standards-based curriculum.
