Kids learned how to set and achieve their goals in a fun way for the New Year!
By Nicholas Regueiro
Thinking about how much our volunteers and local children enjoyed our Goooal! event?
First of all, what is a goal?
I guess you can say that those definitions are interchangeable.
Our volunteers arrived early in the morning and started setting up for what was our most rewarding event this year so far.
Activities were played which allowed each individual to put together a collage that accurately defined their goals for this semester.
Lots of magazines were collected and tons of construction paper was bought in order to help children set out their goals for this upcoming new year.
Our Volunteer Coordinator and Outreach interns spent time trying to plan this great event for our local community. (Shout out to the team!)
Each intern led a specific activity which stimulated a goal reaching mentality among the children in attendance.
Still not jealous you weren't there? We even have our newest CBOB inside joke. Our favorite line of the event was “my favorite fruit is chicken?” Don't you already want to come to the next Children Within Our Borders event?
The best way to describe this event is the opposite of describing a soccer ball. It wasn't black and white but it was colorful. Meaning that everyone in the room had different goals. Goals ranging from graduating to passing the third grade swarmed around the room. Goals are your own and your responsibility.
