After a rejuvenating winter break, City Year Baton Rouge came together on Monday, January 5 as a whole corps for Midyear Summit: Agents of Change. This day of preparation before East Baton Rouge Public School System students went back to school on Tuesday. was intent on uniting our corps after spending our vacation days apart, including different team buildiers and trust based activities. With a visit from City Year Headquarters staffer Chad Richardson (a proud CY Louisiana alum), the day incorporated different workshops for the corps to reflect: on their own personal histories, on their service year to date, and on their goals to finish the year strongly and support students in moving forward. This day helped to re-center the corps and prepare us for the week to come.
