Well My Name Is Amaris Chaparro im bearly 16 years old going to 17 and yes its true iv'e rather spend my afternoons helping others than just messing around watching tv or unimportant stuff. Well My experience has been wonderful, seeing those kids actually happy aside from what their home situations might be is something out of this world. So Every tuesday and thursdsay i march my was down to the center to find a good amount of kids attending. Accompanied by 3 other ladies we take care of them while their moms are at center meetings. Everyother week we have bears, where another group of volunteers read to them. Aside from that we do crafts with them. Laura my leader ha kind of what i consider my "boss" makes everything organized and tries making the crafts as educational as possible so the kids have fun while learning. Also she strongly disagrees with any form of violence and strong words. She tells kids about right and wrongs. As for kids who are acting up, she simply has a conversation with them explaing why it was wrong hitting that little boy or girl or why their actions where not appropiate. Its an awesome experience! :D I love it, and iv'e comed to really enjoy my afternoons there. The Kids have are really cute and well they seem to be having fun.
