Best part of my week is creating a learning environment for the kids to interact with and feel safe in.
This was my second year representing GW Athletics and the GW Women's Soccer team in the Cool Schools Polar Plunge for SODC.
It was another great fundraising year for GW Women's soccer, together we were able to donate over $1000 dollars for SODC.
This was my first week being a coach with Grassroots and at this location. I had to switch programs because of timing but I really liked the coaches that were in this session.
Best part of my week every week is creating a fun learning environment for the kids to interact with.
Second day of training with Grassroots. We learned more specifics of the games we would play with the kids, as well as had the opportunity to act as a coach. Also graduated training and met the group we would be working with in our program.
Learned how to run the games and talk in small groups. Worked with several athletes at other schools and was pushed out of my comfort zone. So glad I joined TGP
I am so glad to be apart of the TGP family! It is a great organization and a good way to be involved in the community around me. It is also such a good way to meet new athletes in the area, that I probably wouldn't have met without TGP
First day of training with The Grassroots Program. Super excited to be working with kids, and teaching them about nutrition. From just one day, I can see how big of an impact this will have on the kids.
Training to coach the new 8th grade mental health curriculum. I learned a lot from this curriculum as well just through training with other athletes and coaches.
This was a great day. I really enjoyed getting out in the community.
Really enjoyed getting to help out at Malcom X elementary and do some cleaning for the teachers and decorating for the students.
It was such a nice way to give back to the community and instant gratification with how our time was making an impact.
Had a great time working with teammates to help organize Malcolm X elementary.
It was really great to be able to work with both the women’s and men’s soccer team together, and all put forth our best efforts to get what was needed to be done! I enjoyed seeing everyone’s end product and knowing this will make a difference in the children’s experience at their school.
I had a great time helping out Malcolm X Elementary school. It was great to be in the school and see that what we were doing was going to positively impact the kids and take pressure away from administrators.
It was a great opportunity to branch out of Foggy Bottom and help an elementary school that was having trouble finding parent volunteers
I had a great Time in helping decorate Malcom X with exciting black history month posters and helping the school become just a little bit more orangized and clean.
Made posters with my teammate for their sockhop and also helped organize their books and other textbooks
