Today was an amazing day here in Newark!  We were sent out to our work sites for the first time!  I spent the day here at the Central Ward Boys and Girls Club cleaning the facilities and running activities for the children.  Most of the time, I hung out with a 10 year old girl and helped her with arts and crafts and talked with her a lot.  It was great talking with the children and learning more about their experiences with the Boys and Girls Club.  One of my favorite parts of the day was going through about 50 photographs the children had taken of each other a few months ago.  The photographs were beautiful and helped us understand how the children see themselves and each other.  I’m looking forward to possibly going on a field trip with the kids tomorrow and maybe even organizing the art closet!
