So it's your day to write in the SLI jounal?

The SLI journal is way for us to see how our experience is comparing to our teammates, and another way to learn from them while we are all split up.

Take this time to reflect on how your day is going, whether it's through a poem, a story, a drawing or a paragraph, or response to someone else entry. This can reflect on the particular day of service, the week or just your AmeriCorps experience as a whole.

Thank you from the seniors of sacremento

The seniors of Sacramento are very grateful for all the hard work we are putting in, hears what they had to say during fallow ups.

"I can't see very well anymore, and my wife has never even touched a computer, what you're doing at AARP and 211 are such a big help to us thank you."

"Everyone is so nice and helpful."

"I don't know what I would do if it wasn't for you guys, you take such a weight of my shoulders."

"It's such a pleasure every year."

How do we help?
