It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later

The past seven months have gone by to quickly, it feels like just the other day the program was just being started but it now sadly coming to a end.  Along our journey we have all progressed in multiple ways. We have all been able to network ourselves and see different career paths for the future. The School Year Program has done a great job in helping us develop skills and knowledge that we may not have been able to get otherwise. Whether, we were working on tweaking our resumes with our experiences we have gotten through the School Year Program, or practicing our publics speaking skills through games, facilitating events or leading weekly sessions. The School Year Program has also, shaped how we viewed National Park Service sites. I use to take National Parks for granted and learned to appreciate them during my time in the program.  For myself being able to network and develop my public speaking skills was a huge take-away from this program. The program has also had us complete projects across multiple sites, for example one such project was Privet Hedge Pruning in the Charlestown Navy Yard. This project had us prune the privet hedge down about a foot, with the help of Alex Sanchez the park gardener, so that visitors could get a better view of the Commandant’s House. The School Year Program is a great experience and it is something all of us would love to repeat again if given the opportunity. Here is our teach-back presentation where we highlighted all the projects and skills we learned throughout the year:
