Jaquette Easterlin, Trinity Learning Center Coordinator, writes about life in the Learning Center this school year: "We are off to a wonderful start at the Learning Center, serving more than 50 middle-school students a day! This year's schedule includes an Enrichment section and Academic section within the program. Students have the opportunity to participate in knitting, drama, Slam Poetry, Drumline, and the Bobcat Club Leadership Council—just to name a few of their options." Kyle Lee, our AmeriCorps member, is getting to know all the kids and says, "It's been a wonderful experience thus far. I am amazed at how inquisitive the Jason Lee Students are, especially when it come to issues of race and privilege. I look forward to getting to know them better as the year progresses."
Jaquette and Kyle are still in need of volunteers and speakers for the Learning Center. Please consider coming one day to share your time and experiences with the students! The Learning Center will have their first evening program for the year on Friday, October 31st at 3:30pm. If you are willing to prepare a covered dish for the students for that evening or come to Trinity and help them cook a meal, please contact Jaquette at firstname.lastname@example.org. They are expecting approximately 10 - 15 kids.
