|The 5th Grade science class at AL Holmes in Detroit, May 2010|
The most fun I've had volunteering has been with an SAE program called "A World in Motion". The kids are great. Super-friendly, respectful, appreciative that people care enough to come into their classroom to spend time with them. Really good kids. I hope we inspire them to keep learning more and more math and science as they get older and stay in school to get their HS diplomas and move on to College. Thats the plan.
I encourage everyone to find some way to reach out to underprivileged kids to find some way to encourage them to not give up on their education or the American Dream. It doesn't do our Nation's or any of our own futures any good if these bright faces don't have a fighting chance to reach their full potential.
