Sterling "Honorary Homeless First Timers": College students experience 
homelessness first-hand during night out on the streets of Montpelier.


Friday afternoon (April 11, 2003) found five Sterling College 
<http://www.sterlingcollege.edu/> students begin their 24-hour experience of 
homelessness first-hand, as part of a night out on the streets of Montpelier 
<http://www.montpelier-vt.org/>, Vermont. This was done in conjunction with 
their community service project portion of college course requirements.

Invitations have been sent to each of these five individuals to become the 
very first team members of the Vermont Homeless Journal (VHJ) 
<http://vthome.blogspot.com/> multi-blog.

The Vermont Homeless Journal(VHJ) is the Web log (or blog) of a group of 
individuals residing, schooling or working in the Green Mountain state who 
are focused on ending involuntary homelessness and securing the affordable 
housing in the state needed to help do so.

VHJ is a multi-blog: i.e. a team blog, blogged by different people.

Each of the five Sterling College students are seniors and are very busy 
with finals, projects, jobs, their lives and other matters, so they may find 
it difficult to find much in the way of time, energy and online access in 
order do a lot of posting on VHJ at this time.

At this time, two of these students have accepted their invitations to blog 
on VHJ and have contributed initial posts concerning their recent 
experience(s).

Additionally, the Vermont Homeless Journal also intends to involve others in 
Vermont who may be interested in joining the blog as contributing bloggers 
as well as things evolve and time passes.

If you are possibly interested, and you are an individual residing, 
schooling or working in the Green Mountain state who is focused on ending 
involuntary homelessness and securing the affordable housing in the state 
needed to help do so, please send an e-mail to vthomeless@hotmail.com for 
possible consideration.
