Review for Opportunity Neighborhood, New Brighton, MN, USA
I worked as a Literacy Intern and Summer Camp Teacher for Opportunity Neighborhood at the Ames Lake site and loved my experience! The staff and organization itself were extremely friendly and helpful to the community, always answering questions, helping out residents and providing many different programs to meet the needs of the families. One of the fantastic programs that I was a part of was the Ames Lake Summer Camp. Students were able to participate in partnership organizations, such as Scouts, St. Paul Public Library, Art Mobile, Youthprise Nutrition program and St. paul Police P.A.L. program. Students also attended field trips that enriched their learning and skills. We took them to a movie theater, water park, roller skating rank, library and wilderness inquiry, and the Midtown Global Market in which many of students have never gone or experienced before. Opportunity Neighborhood provides so much of their time connecting with other organizations to give back to their community and it was such an amazing experience to be part of the Opportunity Neighborhood team in helping assist students and families.
