Community Service with Living Histories

My name is Brianna Bellmar and I am a student at California State University, Long Beach. I am taking a community psychology class and community service with a local non-profit community organization is a component of the class. The goal of community service learning is to enhance learning through reflection on the connections between information covered in class and actual experiences in the community.

I am volunteering at Animo South LA High School and the students in the photography class are very talented. I am already learning from this experience that our youth has a great amount of talent and many of them just need a creative outlet to showcase what they can do.
