My name is Jenna and I am an intern at Neighborhood Partners which is a program of Goodwill NCW. At Neighborhood Partners, we work in neighborhoods all throughout the Fox Cities by trying to connect people in those communities with kids in afterschool programs. We empower individuals to use assets they already have (things they are good at, know how to do, or know a lot about) and teach kids about these skills or activities. Currently, I am working on getting neighbors or community members to come teach kids at Kaleidoscope Academy (6th-8th graders) and Columbus Elementary (1st-5th graders). When coming in to teach the kids, individual's have taught various topics such as how to tie a tie, different yoga poses, how to sing a round, and how to make ice cream. The session can be simple and short! They are just excited to have someone come in and its a great way to make a connection with kids in the community! Seeing as though many of you are college students, this is a great way to share your expert knowledge and passions with kids who may be interested in the same things you are.
