“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
2014 Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service was one of service and learning. On Friday, January 17th, 2014 at the Isabel Miller Community Center Camden County Youth Volunteer Corps (CCYVC), Camden County Senior Corps/RSVP and YE2S Center joined together to discuss with youth what they think “What Not” and “What to Wear” during an interview for a potential job and the perception received wearing both.
After the interactive discussion, the young men had the opportunity to put on dress shirts and learn how to tie a tie, provided by Promise Neighborhood, Family Success Center on Benson Street. Todd Pisani, the YE2S Center Intake Coordinator took them step by step to tie a Windsor knot as well as a basic knot. It was a first for the youth to learn how to tie a tie and once accomplishing the task felt immediately more confident to walk into an interview prepared.
On Monday, January 20th, 2014, three volunteers came to Image and Attitude in Pennsauken to sort and organize business attire that will be outfitted for men and women who are interviewing for a job. Image and Attitude aims to elevate the self esteem of men and women offering on going support through job-readiness development and support. Sheila Barrett who outfits women that are interviewing for a job, showed the two ladies how to outfit themselves for a potential interview. Terrell Hutchins, who outfits the men, showed Jose what type of suit to look for and the shoes to go with it. Jose tied his tie with ease after Friday’s “How To”.
This day of service and learning for Camden County Youth Volunteer Corps volunteers goes hand in hand in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. It was a great exchange that we will continue on the next service project with Cathedral Kitchen.
