The first school day of the new year found Service Learning Director Jackie Gomez and 10 students volunteering their time at San Diego’s Stand Up for Kids facility.
Mrs. Gomez notes, “Community Service Initiative students have been focusing their learning and efforts on child/teen homelessness in San Diego this year.” On Monday, Jasmine Behnam ’21, Meghan Behr ’20, Jasmine Dabbas ’21, Athena Hernández ’23, Sarina Krishnan ’20, Alina Kureshi ’22, Emma Myer ’23, Elizabeth Stuart-Chaffoo ’20, Tate Vaccaro ’22 and Austin Yang ’21 helped the director with various tasks around the shelter. The group learned more about how the organization provides shelter, food, showers, education, clothing and more to local homeless youth.
