We did it! Finally, Cesar Chavez Middle School, Hayward CA, is officially the first participant school in Global Call to Youth in the Bay Area. We could not have chosen a better day as April 15th was Global Youth Service day. The weather was gorgeous. We reached the middle school at 3 PM. We had 13 enthusiastic youth volunteers from the school. Mr. Joshua Bennett, Head of the after school gardening program, was instrumental in making this venture a huge success. Tameeka Kelly, our GCY coordinator and advisor for Hayward area, also participated in planting.
We sincerely thank the volunteers, Alexis Guitierrez, Pablo Rios, Brian Barajas, Tristan Squires, Kamal Gill, Jasdip Sekhan, Gerrick Puenas, Carlos Perez, Yousuf Amir, Story Amir, Shiva Kumar. Roman Johnson and Edison Reyes for being a part of GCY.
After working hard for 2-3 hours, we all had a pizza party to celebrate the event. This marks the official beginning of our local work. We are always welcoming volunteers who can help us extend this to other schools in low income neighborhoods in the Bay.
