Week 8 – Detroit Community-Engaged Research Program

Week 8

The week before the last. I am excited to see how much progress the kids at archery has made. This project has allowed me to see the joys of working with children as well as the importance of environmental stewardship. One thing that I wish I could improve on was doing better at teaching about the environment because the kids didn’t care too much if their playground was surrounded by trash. Especially since these children are our future, I wish I could’ve did more to encourage them to care about their environment. However, something that I am proud of is the relationships that I have built during this program. I am glad that some of them felt like they are able to reach out to me whenever. I think my site did a great job of showing me what it’s like to work at a nonprofit. This is by far the most engaging internship that I’ve ever had.
