Fighting Poverty with Passion
Wow. Service learning is crazy. I think I have learned my lesson and that is partnering with 5 classes in one semester is crippling. Note to self and Green Light: let’s cap our partnerships to around 3 or 4 classes. Yes, I know I got ambitious. Part of my VAD was to “expand Green Light’s service learning component.” What I didn’t realize is that I needed to do this to the extent of Green Light’s capacity. I guess I have successfully expanded service learning, but at the expense of my sanity.
On that note, BUDDHA BLESS YOU FOR OUR DELTA 3 NCCC TEAM!!!!!
I honestly don’t know how the office can operate without them! They provide capacity to Green Light’s daily functions and spice up daily office chat when work slows down. Our team actually lives next door in Andi’s (Green Light Executive Director) house while he’s away in Switzerland.
I truly am so grateful for their hard work.
