In the Spring semester of 2018, I was one of the eight recipients of the Hubert Scholarship. Established by the Hubert Charitable Trust, the Hubert Scholars program is designed to encourage careers in public service and provides funding for summer internships of 200-plus hours serving the needs of others – for food, medical attention, education, or spiritual support (Agnes Scott College). Many students choose to go overseas to conduct their work. But I knew that I didn’t need to travel far to find a community in need. For my service project, I taught middle and high school age kids how to code in the Python programming language at my former Boys & Girls Club for two months in the summer of 2018.
This was the first actual tutoring session for the year. Again, the girls were very receptive to starting their work for the afternoon. The other ASC students also seemed very engaged and helpful.
This was our first tutoring session of the semester. The dynamic of the group has changed a lot from last year, but in a good way. The majority of the girls in these session were engaged and productive. We also got a lot of positive feedback from the DHS teachers.
