I have a busy few weeks ahead of me! This week I will meet with the Community Policing Services about the “Pavement Princesses Run for Fun” program in Prince George. This program is designed to help girls between the ages of 10-15 live a healthy lifestyle. The twice a week sessions include speakers that begin by talking about current issues facing youth such as drugs, gangs, alcohol, abuse, and internet/texting awareness; after this the girls go into groups for a run. I am very excited about this volunteer experience and hope that I can be a positive role model! I will also be participating in the Arts and Culture Award Night, a local event where artists of the city are recognized and awarded. This event is held on April 27th, at the Prince George Playhouse. This sunday I will be volunteering with Books & Company for their “Earth Day Crafternoon”. The day will involve a craft, reading, and planting seeds with children. I am really looking forward to getting more involved in my community, and I will post more after each event!
