I was introduced to SCCAP by a friend and I was intrigued by SCCAP’s mission of service and social justice. So this year, I became a part of SCCAP’s support staff team. Being a part of the support staff team, I don’t run a program so a lot of things that support staff team do are behind-the-scenes. However, I do intend to attend as many programs as possible to learn more about each individual programs. Recently, I had the opportunity to attend Senior Connection and I had a great time with the program coordinator and another volunteer as we danced and played games with seniors at Live Oak Adult Day Care.
Over the past weekend, our entire SCCAP staff went on a retreat and we went to the Women’s March in San Francisco. Despite being drenched in down pouring rain, I think the rally and march was very empowering as thousands of women and men came together to march for human rights and social justice issues. The Women’s March gave us hope that we can make a difference and fight for our rights and future.
