When my friend Andee asked me if I’d donate my services for the upcoming Citizen Schools NY Spring Gala, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
Citizen Schools is a unique take on the after-school program. Just as the name implies, citizens (adult volunteers) provide hands-on learning projects for under-served students in grades 6 to 8. Through apprenticeships and presentations, these students gain valuable experience that’s not included in their regular school curricula. Some of the apprenticeships Citizen Schools have hosted include public speaking, starting a restaurant, journalism, video game design, and activism through art.
On March 10th, the New York branch of Citizen Schools is holding their Spring Gala at NBC’s Studio 8H – where SNL is performed and filmed. My healthy home consulting services will be up for bid, so come out to support a good cause and maybe ‘win’ a session with me! Get your tickets here.
