I am currently at the University of Pennsylvania and have been involved in a DREAM Philadelphia
mentoring program for the past three years. Every Friday we walk to 44th and Market St. to "project buildings" where we play with the kids for two to three hours. Activities involve playing football, cooking together, and even going ice-skating in downtown Philadelphia. Each one of us is also assigned an individual mentee with whom we spend time outside of the program and exchange presents during the holidays.
