Dana is an Activities Specialist. Dana has been with REACH for 5 months and is currently working on her degree at Corban University.
Why/How working with youth adds value to her life: Our youth always surprise me with how intelligent, charismatic, and insightful they are. Having the opportunity to see them learn and grow is such a rewarding experience.
Her REACH inspirational moment/success story: For me, success stories occur when I have real conversations with the youth, learning about their interests and struggles outside REACH. It helps me build better connections with the youth.
Dana’s favorite REACH activity: Upcycle Recycle! The youth are able to take recycled materials and make their own creations. This activity really allows the youth to show their creative and innovative ideas.
Additional thoughts from Dana: Thank you to our REACH families for letting us have a part in mentoring these youth!
