Contributed by Amy Matheny, The Corners at Highland Heights – FirstWorks at the Corners volunteer
This year marks my second year volunteering with FirstWorks at the Corners and I am loving every bit of it! I first fell in love with the program my Provisional year fulfilling a Community shift. I liked how sweet the people organizing the program were with the kids, and in turn, the mutual respect the children had for them. I decided to make the program my first choice as a placement and was lucky enough to get it.
With one year of this program under my belt, it has been rewarding coming back a second year. The children are so adorable, and having the chance to see how they have grown over the year has been wonderful. I especially appreciate how many of the parents stick around for dinner as well. You can tell this is a really tight-knit community that really cares about its children’s education.
