06 Jun New adventures with the Hopewell Team!
My first official week here at Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site is coming to an end, and I can’t tell you how excited I am for these next couple weeks ahead. After this extensive and productive week of introductions, a walk-through, and training, I have been able to see how special Hopewell and the team is.
I don’t want to spoil too much of what I will be doing here in Hopewell, but one of the many projects I’m going to be involved in is getting to work closely with a young group of Latinx kids!
Centro Cultural Latinos Unidos ( CCLU ) is a bilingual, bridge-building organization, committed to enriching the lives of Latinos and others by embracing diversity through cultural, educational and recreational programs in the greater Pottstown area. The kids will be coming down to Hopewell and getting to spend some of their day here, along with their parents. I will be taking them on a walk, giving a small tour of the park, all while doing hands on activities with the children.
Getting to work with the Latinx community is obviously very important to me, so naturally I am happy to be able to share my love for the NPS with these kids and show them what it’s like to be a part of a great team. Besides that, I will be helping the park with a few social media projects, updating signs and creating Interpretive Programs!
Stay tuned for my future posts about those projects! (:
¡Hasta la próxima!
