The Duke Club of Washington has an awesome program called Partners in Education. Alumni from across the DC area partner with local area schools to serve as mentors to the students. Recently, at the behest of Kim, I participated in a field trip to Cox Farms in Virginia with first graders. I got to say, it was a lot of fun. I’m really glad that I was able to be a part of the field trip and meet the students. I don’t have much interaction with kids in my work or in my other volunteer activities, and I was really inspired by how intelligent and inquisitive the first graders were.
