2010... That Went Fast!

This year was an incredible year for Light and Leadership. We offered more than 500 English classes to over 120 students, designed a case management system for our participants, opened new Chess and Math programs, began integration of a set curriculum, moved to a bigger and brighter classroom space and volunteer home, and plus, we saw over 50 volunteers from Finland to Australia contribute to LLI's goal of accessible and quality education! It was a fantastic year and we are so grateful to all of those who support us, specifically our Alpaca Club Members (find out how to join here)!

December closed out 2010 for LLI with a bang... literally. LLI volunteers took nine of Light and Leadership's most dedicated and top performing students to see STOMP, the percussion and music show, where kids watched bright eyed as the perfomers banged away on everything on stage. Beforehand, kids were treated to a full "pollo a la brasa" meal and delicious dessert! Great job kids, keep of the FANTASTIC work!

LLI also treated our other students who had participated in our programs to special attendance prizes. Prizes were awarded according to their attendance percentage... kids enjoyed choosing between brand new board games, puzzles, dolls, t-shirts, and more! Great work kids!

Also, Light and Leadership held it's second Chess tournament! The two finalists were once again Hericka and Jhordy, but this time Hericka came out on top! Excellent! Look for the next chess tournament at the end of February.

If 2010 was this good, we better look out for 2011! We have a full volunteer house scheduled to start our programs on January 10th, plus a Trinity Christian College Interim group will be holding a day camp. Our programs will continue in Art, Physical Education, English, French, Math, Chess, Dance, and soon we will be offering Keyboarding and Typing! Stay tuned.

Thanks again to everyone who made 2010 such a success for Light and Leadership! We look forward to next year!
