Today was my last day (unless GWU opens back up) at LAYC, and this goodbye definitely made me the saddest. I said goodbye to a lot of the staff members like Marie and Mesgana, to fellow volunteers, and the teens, which really broke my heart. Jonathan, Kenneth, and I bonded a lot during my time at the teen center, and I wish the best for them and for everyone else who works/participates in the program, and I especially hope to come back sooner than later. I will also miss working with Luis - a fantastic, uber talented artist - in graffiti classes on Tuesdays, as well as the kids in that class, who taught me so much during my time as being an assistant/helper teacher there. Because DCPS schools are also shutting down (some or most transferring to online classes as many universities are), LAYC will also be closed for two weeks. Marie made an announcement for all the teens/participants at the center to write down their phone numbers for the center's staff to be able to notify them when the center will open again and/or have resources for them in case the situation gets really ugly, especially in a city where a lot of these kids and their families are faced with economic hardships and food insecurity. As a last hoorah, and ate with and played Uno with some of the kids at the center again, and then helped wipe down some chairs and tables in order to disinfect everything for the center's longer dormant period.
