Throughout the 2014-2015 school year, I have led the Head Start outreach initiative at Friends. Every few weeks, my co-leader and I took a group of Friends students to the Head Start location at the Educational Alliance. We split up into several classrooms full of young children around the age of five and entertained the young children. We did activities like puzzles, computer games, board games, trains, and more with the kids, while creating relationships with them.
Head Start was a great experience as it really became an activity that I enjoyed to lead for the community. Seeing these happy and adorable kids and having them recognize me every time I visited, gave me an incredible feeling. I feel that working with these children not only left a positive impact on the children and their families, but also on me. I am super glad I participated with this organization and would love to continue working with them in the future.
