What a wonderful experience it was to talk to Willa Deitch’s students at the YouthBuild Charter School in Philly yesterday.Â There were 13 students in her class.
The students were attentive, got involved in the discussion and asked a lot of questions – what a great class!
The service project that Willa picked for this class was two fold: raise awareness of the homeless, and provide the homeless with new socks.
According to their web site, “The YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School provides out-of-school youth in Philadelphia with the broadest range of tools, support and opportunities to become self-sufficient, responsible, contributing members and leaders in their community.”
And if this service project (more on this in a later post) is any indication of how these students can help the less fortunate in the community then we should be very proud of the job Willa and her students are doing.
Great job guys!!
