#HFGather: Celebrating 2021 with Staff and Community

Dec 21, 2021 | HFGather, The Highlights Foundation Experience

We had so much fun celebrating our highlights of 2021! Virtual visitors joined us from India (hi, Steve!), Mexico (hello, Yuko!) and all over the U.S. Everyone on the Highlights Foundation Team had things to share, and we were all humbled by the stories shared by our community about our impact on them.

If you missed the live #HFGather, you can watch it here:

Here’s something we loved: Yuko Torii made this great sketch and tweeted it after the #HFGather:

Visiting Our Campus

Our campus (The Barn at Boyds Mills) is tucked away in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It's a few hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, but worlds away from everyday life.
