Our program for the meeting was a presentation about Hands4Hope.  Speakers included Jennifer Bassett, Founder/Executive Director, Kathy Van Saun, Education Program Coordinator, Nivi Kumar, student at Vista Del Lago High School, and Elise Taylor, student at Folsom High School.  According to their website, "Our primary objective is to enable youth to make a difference in their communities and offer meaningful community service projects combined with instruction and reflection, school-based clubs, and diverse leadership opportunities. Youth are able to decide their own level of involvement."  There are clubs at Folsom Middle School and Folsom High School.  For more information about Hands4Hope, click on Hands4Hope.
Our next meeting will be on February 18 at 7pm via ZOOM.  We will get an update on the Peru Community Kitchen Project and our program will be about WeEMBRACE.
