What an exciting week working collaboratively with The Power to be International organization in the planning and delivery of the Community Literacy, Leadership and Engagement Camp for children in Negril, Jamaica. It was a very unique and rewarding opportunity to volunteer in an international setting that also allowed us to gain a better understanding of global issues and our roles as global citizens.
I could not have asked to share this experience with a better group of Centennial students and colleagues, everyone worked collaboratively and were fully engaged in learning, planning, coaching, singing, laughing and so much more. Jamaica is a beautiful country, filled with warm and caring people. It was a privilege being in the classroom with so many children and meeting the caring staff and volunteers who make this annual camp experience possible!
