EXPLORING LEADERSHIP!
 
 
 
 
For the launch of the 2022-2023 school year, new and returning AmeriCorps members came together over three days to prepare for the school year program. Members were able to gain a strong understanding of AmeriCorps while generating excitement for the upcoming year. While on the retreat, AmeriCorps members created “Why I serve” statements, participated in several training sessions including disaster preparedness with the Red Cross, DEI training, professionalism, program-specific breakout sessions, and so much more. Members were also treated to a few fun team activities – including a Top Chef competition judged by members of the leadership team, a trip to an Escape Room, and a scavenger hunt.

STEM
 
The second graders were able to not only learn about the different phases of the moon but they were able to learn about it in a fun and exciting way. They watched a video first to learn more about the phases. The best part was the hands-on activity they had. They learned how to create the different shapes of the moon phases by taking an Oreo and shaping the icing in the moon's phase. When they were finished, the kids could enjoy a little extra snack by eating the Oreos.
DEI
 
The Clubs dove into diversity, equity, and inclusion–taking a non-evasive but intentional approach. August’s theme, “Be You”, focused on building the cultural competence of our members by providing opportunities for positive affirmations, appreciation for individuality, and an appreciation for diversity. Members created a bulletin board, choosing words that described them. Purpose of the ‘I AM’ wall space is to highlight the individuality in our members, expressing self-love, confidence and what they represent. 
SPARK
 
With the first day of school, Students got to know their classmates during Spark, an evidence-based physical education program comprising of activities and games designed to positively affect members’ activity levels both inside and outside of the Clubs for 30 mins physical activity daily. Members would pass around the ball state their names and three fun facts about themselves.
