On Friday, November 15, 2019, the Supplemental Instruction (SI) program volunteered to decorate journals for La Casa De Las Madres, a nonprofit in San Francisco that provides domestic violence victims support, household supplies, and shelter.
The students decorated journals with artwork, supportive quotes, and messages letting victims know that communities are here to support them. La Casa De Las Madres gives these journals to clients to use during their healing process as part of their self-care and participation with support groups.
In addition to decorating journals, the SI team discussed the importance of taking the skills they learn in SI and here at Skyline College back to their own communities.
SI and the greater Learning Center (TLC) team is dedicated to creating model student leaders both in our classrooms and in the larger communities integrated with Skyline College. Over the last year, the SI program has restructured to provide ongoing mentorship and professional development to all SI Leaders in order to build stronger communal support for students and student workers on campus. The team is excited and looking forward to the next volunteer opportunity in the spring 2020 semester!
