LaJuan Garcia: Reflections of a Volunteer (entry 2)

Friday February 13, 2009 (Wrap up Day)

There isn’t a job at Cabrini Connections that doesn’t mean something. I spent my Friday afternoon making sure every student and volunteer had a file. It’s definitely important in keeping track of the students and volunteers because every student and volunteer in the program is worth that attention. I also took the time to water some plants; a job that seems simple, but actually has great meaning at Cabrini Connections. The plants I watered were planted by some of the students who took part in the annual EdgeWood College 'Experience' and maintaining them is just one way to show the kids that what they do at Cabrini Connections is special and meaningful. I look forward in learning more about the students in the program.

Here is a video of the students, volunteers, and our special guests from Edgewood College. The Edgewood College 'Experience' is a 3 day adventure where Tom Holub and his graduate students from Edgewood College provides small and big group activities, a scavenger hunt, special field trips, and GREAT food for the youth here at Cabrini Connections.
