Peace/OSC Plus Program

My name is Chyrisse Dunnorm and I'm the Director of the Peace Community and Mentor to 10 incredible youth. I meet all of them 8 weeks ago and connected to them in a special way. They are known to me as The Peace Dream Team and their name are Avery, Justin, Shaquille, Jaquille, Tony, Darrius Jerome Quest, Gaylon and the Princess Shaquanda. I couldn't have been paired with an awesome group of youth than The Peace dream Team. I've had the pleasure of watching 10 youth from different parts of Englewood unite as a family. They have shown me what is to endure obstacles and overcome differcult situations. I've learn how to Love more because of them and respect the difference between of allof their different personalities. I've drawn strength from the Dream Teams resilence. They didn't let nothing get in the way of their being on time every day nor did they let anything getting get in the way of them as a team completeing their Financial Literacy or their Social Emotional Learning workshops. When it was time to let their  voices be heard about overcoming tramua in the neighborhoods the Dream Team expressed their concerns very well. Ive enjoyed  our outing downtown and I've also enjoyed hearing them voice their opinions in the circle.  They are  truly Smart, Loving and Kind people when you get to know them as I have  had the Joy and Pleasure. They know the importance of being Independant, being Responsible, Prompt, Balancing a job, school, and family. They understand that their journey in life is based on their choice and their decision. They understand that their education is the key to unlocking career opprtunities that would help  them provide for their families. They have learned how to have Intergrity and Respect for themselves and others. and they also learned what to do when they step out of Intergrity with their families and peers. I'm  very proud of what they have accomplished as a Team and Indidvidually. I'm very proud of the Leadership role that Avery has diplayed during the program, Justin(Strength), Quest( Meekness),Shaquille(Peacefulness), Jaquille(Gentleness), Darrius(Joy), Gaylon(Determination), Jerome( Kindness), Tony( Goodness) and the Princess( Faithfulness and Love for her team). Truly, I have been Blessed with Awesome Dream and I'm Grateful for the time that, we have spent together. I Love this Team Dearly and I'm Excited about their continuing Going For Greater as they are in the stage of Transitioning back to school and finding part-time jobs. The Dream Team have already finished their cover letters and resume and have  been on the internet filling out job applications. Avery and Gaylon are currently getting ready for College in and out of State, Jaquille, Darrius, Shaquille and Quest are getting ready for their Senior year, Jerome is getting vready for his Junior year, Shaquanda Sophomore year, Tony have decided to get his GED and me( Chyrisse) I'm still pursuing my Bachelors degree at the University of Phoenix.  I Thank God that they relationships that were formed in the OSC Plus summer program are long term. Peace and Blessing be unto you and your family from Ms. Chyrisse and The Peace Dream Team.
