September –December 2013This past fall with seven TCC Interns, we saw the numbers of students swell to over 25. A life skills class for mothers met in the apartment complex across the street and their children ages 3-12 years would attend the weekly sessions. A large number of older elementary boys also attended and group activities were organized for their growth in the area of leadership and communication. Organized sports activities are necessary for boys of this age and the two young male interns served as coaches for these boys. Our focus character trait was Respect. We see that these children are looking for a place to connect with adults and organized activities. We found that active sports before quieter group activities did help to curb some of the behavior issues.
