Extended Service Trip: BUFFALO!!!

The last week of winter break, I traveled to Buffalo, NY with a group of seven other students from Saint Michael's to participate in a week long service trip. Our group of Saint Mike's students split off into two groups to work in two different middle schools for the week. I was in a group that went to St. Augustine (an all boys middle school), and the other group went to St. Monica's (an all girls middle school).

We spent the week sitting in on classes, tutoring the students in study hall and cheering them on at their basketball games, and doing other miscellaneous projects around the school.

My favorite part of the week was eating lunch with the boys at St. Augustine. The students told me their dreams and aspirations for their future. Some told me they wanted to be a writer and go to Harvard, another wanted to be a veterinarian and go to Georgetown, and another told me about how they wanted to go to UCLA and play in the NBA. The week in Buffalo was a great way to start off 2017. I highly recommend that every student takes part in a MOVE service trip before they graduate!

Until next time,
Katie :)
