Weekly Reflections – Week 12 – from Ramini
Tell us about your successes (or frustrations) in connecting with community resources. How might your fellow AmeriCorps members or HPAC staff help?
Coincidentally, one of HPAC’s connections is someone my students are trying to reach out to. Amaha, the leader of the Gem City Dayton grocery store project, is someone I think will be an excellent person to ask about west Dayton’s food desert, and I am encouraging my students to reach out to him. I think he will be more likely to be receptive since he is already familiar with the program. At this point, I don’t think we need to much help, but I anticipate that I’ll need guidance soon enough!
