8 weeks of free summer classes for children in Historic Greenport Village


Paul Drum Life Experience Project

About Us



The Paul Drum Life Experience Project affords  children the opportunity to participate in a vast and diverse array of activities and workshops designed to open their worlds and expand their horizons

The desired result being broader fields of interests, piqued curiosity in something outside of one's own realm of everyday experiences, and an enthusiasm for learning.



It all started with a young man’s enthusiasm. 

Paul Drum was seeking a way to give back to the generous community who unconditionally accepted and supported him. 

That’s when Arlene and Sharon stepped up to the challenge 

Sharon Sailor and Arlene Klein are idealists and implementers. Sharon is a business woman and proprietor of a successful restaurant. Arlene,  a retired teacher, is a resourceful, creative innovator. Their driven, mutual mindset resulted in The Paul Drum Life Experience Project which provides children the opportunities for exploration and expression. 



Designed for children 7–12 years of age, meeting once a week for 8 weeks during July and August. 

At each weekly session a new theme of interest is presented and led by an expert in that particular field. 

Varied topics may include signing for hearing children, robotics, touring an electric power plant, shark study, and so much more. 

This program is available free of charge, and grows with money provided by donations from our global community, generous sponsors, and “fun-raisers”.


The Paul Drum Life Experience Project is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to enriching the lives of children through the exploration of ideas, discussions and hands-on experiences. 

Thank you for helping us give children a world of experiences.
