During Fall quarter, I partnered with the Center for Community Engagement to plan the first Bronco Service Day of the year. Every quarter the Center for Community Engagement plans a large scale service project for CPP students and staff to give back to the Pomona community. For this service project we worked with the Inland Empire United Way on the annual “Make a Difference Day” at Garey high school in Pomona.
For our project at Garey high school, we brought 40 proud Broncos to give back by re-doing the school’s ASB room and Parent’s room. As a group, we painted murals, assembled furniture, cleaned spaces, repainted rooms, and helped update the school. The hard work of our team was both gratifying and fun as we worked to connect with our community. I sincerely enjoyed working with the Garey High School ASB president as she guided our work to help make the ASB room awesome! This experience is just one of the unique partners we have with UHS that allows us to work above and beyond the arena of residence life. As a result of my partnership, I plan to continue collaborating with the Center for Community Engagement on upcoming projects to get our on-campus students involved.
