What I liked
I loved working with the youth involved in this program. It was a wonderful experience building relationships of trust with each of them and watching recreation play a major role in those relationships. When I started working with my boys, they planned to go to Nickel Arcade and Oasis (card games) almost every night for their activity. By the time I finished working with them, they were planning and enjoying activities like picking cherries and baking cherry pie, as well as personal training, running 5k's and even knitting. It was amazing to see how trying new recreational activities and hobbies helped them discover themselves and become more developed and able in all aspects of their lives.
