Reflecting on the Importance of Belonging and Identity at the 2019 Summer Impact Charger
City Year Milwaukee's Impact staff went to Boston to attend a City Year nation-wide Summer Impact Charger. The three day event centered around the topic of belonging and leadership best practice sharing. Each day participants attended different sessions and assemblies that covered different topics including clover model, strengths finding and learning from alumni leaders. Tuesday's focus was belonging and identity. Our very own Sarah Szymborski was asked to share a reflection on her experience serving with City Year for the last three years.
