Today I had my first session of PAL for this year— I'm glad we were able to get started and start thinking about a learning goal (food science!!). I think we're going to work towards making a powerpoint about food science —also thinking about fun activities.
I do miss my old PAL learner though and am really sad that due to staffing constraints I can't continue with her, but looking forward to the rest of PAL this semester.

House of Hope Youth Outreach Program

Tory, Clark, and I also attended an open youth recovery meeting at the Jim Gillen Anchor Teen Recovery Center in Providence today. This was a cool experience because we got to see how another resource helps to build community among vulnerable populations of youth. We played a game with the staff and youth there, and then talked a little about the resources available for recovery in RI — honestly, not a lot, but we were happy to learn about what the Recovery Center itself can offer to our clients. Also, this event fit well in terms of my long-term experiences learning about the intersections of substance abuse and homelessness w/ H2H.

Today Tory Clark and I attended the Central Falls HS transitions faire to do event-based outreach to the high schoolers there. This was a lot of fun for a couple reasons — first just hanging out w/ Tory and Clark, second because I had never been to Central Falls (and hadn't been to a high school in a while!), and third because we were able to do a HUGE amount of outreach. When we do street-based outreach, many of the young people we approach are not experiencing housing insecurity; at the fair, we were able to reach all of those people + more in a very quick and streamlined way, explaining to probably hundred+ students what H2H does and how to get in contact with Tory. Also I got to work on my "elevator pitch" for H2H which is always important!!

I had 2 sessions during the course of the last month with my learner — it's a bit upsetting that we end up missing so many sessions due to staff constraints, but it's still always so good to see my learner and spend time with her. We had a really good time doing more spelling and maths, and I'm also always happy to see the staff-person that accompanies my learner. My learner is very comfortable spelling my full name now (we start with names) which is sweet to see :)

This was my first Spring session with my learner — we got off to a slow start due to logistical issues but it was SO fun reuniting with her and her staff. We had a really awesome first session this semester setting broad learning goals and I'm very much looking forward to the rest of our sessions.

Workshop - Community Organizing: Tools and Tales from Local Leaders
House of Hope Youth Outreach Program

This was our first Policy team meeting with Michelle, Clark, Laura (PC student), and myself. We chatted about goals for the semester-- although we're getting off to a slow start, we're excited about doing a form of event-based outreach to youth in Providence. Also, Clark is working on some cool medical-related initiatives that I'm excited to possibly support.

Today was PAL's Spring orientation — it was great to see the old leadership crew again and also spend some time reflecting on best practices for PAL sessions. I'm excited to start sessions this semester!
