Our Learn-2-Grow (L2G) program will be the focus of our second celebration to share with you. As mentioned last issue, we want to share with you the amazing year Fit-2-Serve (F2S) experienced. We are celebrating each Community Bridges Program by the numbers! Here they are for Learn-2-Grow (L2G):
Classes delivered: 108 total . . . 184 students monthly
Volunteerism: 141 hours. . . 81 community volunteers
The very first L2G programs began when Bill Duey began volunteering for his wife, Rachel's kindergarten class. Though the program was not technically a Community Bridges Program at the time, it became evident that this was the perfect introduction into 'service learning' for our youth. This was perfect timing (His Timing) as COVID restrictions brought the Generation-2-Generation program to a halt. Third graders and kindergarten students had been bused to one of our then seven senior living facilities. Needing to adjust, Learn-2-Grow was the perfect answer to engaging the kindergarten students.
