For my YPI project I focused on the organization Sanctuary for Families. I think a challenging part of the project for me was the fact that they was so much information and we just did not have enough time to say it all. Because of this we would love to ranse more awareness about these issues. Mariana, one of my partners and I are trying to organize an assembly and a bake sale to raise awareness about our social issue. We are also planning on volenteering at our organization. The organization has done so much for me that I want to give back and help them. Sanctuary has been truly life changing for me. I was shocked to learn about all of the violence going on around me in society that I had no idea about. I feel like this was an eye opening experience.
The people at Sanctuary were wonderful, they were kind, passionate and they were extremely helpful. Even though we did not win the competition, I hope we were able to teach other children about Sanctuary and its work.
I think this project was a great use of our time in history class. I learned so much about my community and all of the problems in it. There are many organizations I am now interested in helping.
