My experience with the Jubilee Center has shown me that I can be an educator towards the young children that will soon be the future of accountants, construction workers, teachers, etc. Jubilee has provided the exercise for me mentally to focus on constructive teaching and behavior modifacation towards children. The Jubilee Center is a tree that branches off and helps families and the community and many different ways. For example, school supplies for children, after school well placed meals to keep their young minds and bodies energized after a long day of school. The Jubilee Center also helps the community out economically with utilities. This also includes the childrens families that attend the Center.
Jubilee is about the alignment of 100's of people who share a basic belief that our purpose is to improve lives and strengthen communities. The "gift" of engaging in the ministry of Jubilee Park is that one not only is changing the lives of the people in the 62 block community but the boomerang effect of life changing opportunities for all who give of their time and love. While there are differnces in individual approaches to this transformation; the goal of attacking poverty and injustice through education is a shared vision of all who support the vision that Jubilee Park is a community where people love to live.
As a Jubilee member I have experienced the learning experience of children of diffferent age groups. I have exercised encouraging students to count with their fingers while engaging math. Also word pronounciaction; by reading along with students or reading before them to give the general ideal of how to pronouce a word while reading.
