Monthly Volunteer Reports at the FYI Center

Monthly Volunteer Reports

at the FYI Center

AmeriCorps Service Member CJ Scolari:

Hello! My name is CJ and Im writing to share my perspective on whats happening at the FYI Center. Im a high school student serving as an AmeriCorps member at the center. This means I spend a whole school year helping with activities and service projects and receive an education award for college afterwards. I was asked to serve as an AmeriCorps member because I spent a lot of time helping at the FYI Center when I was a kid. Getting involved early has given me some great opportunities.

I have always wanted a panda because I wouldnt need a car. My panda could drive me places. I would name my pet panda Garrett because Garrett is my best friend.

Why Did The Parrot Cross The Road?

The parrot crossed the road because he wanted to get to his family in the jungle. On his way he almost got hit by a car. Thankfully he flew up. It was a very busy road and there were lots of cars. He flew across. He got to the jungle.
