YD Tech Academy

School starts tomorrow! The last three days Samokov and my organization, Svetlina, have hosted 5 new Youth Devlopment Volunteers from Peace Corps. They just swore in and moved to site a little over a month ago, and the purpose was for them to work with a "seasoned" volunteer and their kids and practice some technical skills in our field.

Since Friday, we've worked together to plan and implement a three day End of Summer camp for the kids at my organization.

Day #1:

We started the day with "Train Wreck" - which as always, as proven to be a group favorite! Think they would have played all day if we didn't have anything else planned...

We did a "Who Am I" activity with the kids. They traced each other onto large pieces of poster board, then filled in the outlines with clothing and interests. They also cut through magazines and colored the free space to represent themselves.
