This was my last time volunteering at Kids Club for the semester! There was a birthday celebration, and we decorated Christmas cookies and colored cards to send to nursing homes. I am excited to continue with it next semester!
It was a really nice time celebrating the holidays and helping out at the home. It always seems like this time of years gets people in a good mood from the beginning.
I helped prepping for the studio art session that happens everyday. I enjoyed organizing everything but not as much as helping out during the art sessions.
That was my last time at the Triumph and it was a lot of fun! I brought some cookies to celebrate and I got to see a lot of the kids for the last time. It was sweet and I'm glad I got to meet them all.
I worked again as an art helper and assisted the homeless people with whatever they needed. While I was walking around someone called me over and asked for my opinion on what color scheme they should use. It made me feel really happy because they wanted my opinion and they valued it.
Presented my mid-semester presentation of my fellowship
I really enjoyed what Alex from DC Central Kitchen had to say about getting his start in a career of service and making a productive transition from just being a "Community Service Kid" to being someone who truly lives out the values of service everyday through his career. I also enjoyed attending the first part of the GW Teach Session on making partnerships with DC Public Schools however I would have liked to learn more about the partnerships GW Teach is developing with the schools instead of just having a dialogue about whether or not we think it is important for GW as an institution to enter into partnerships with DC Public Schools. Although perhaps the presenter got to that later in the session but after I had to leave to go to a meeting.
