Greencorps Youth Receive Introduction to Yoga

Greencorps Youth at Team Englewood learned that yoga is not only good for your body, it's great for your mind!  Deep breathing techniques were stressed during Thursday's yoga session with Tameka Lawson from iGrow Chicago.  Students learned that while one cannot control the body's immediate physical reaction to stressful situations, focusing on deep breathing can help control the emotional response.  The session, while brief, was very informative and the response was overwhelmingly positive.   Thanks, Tameka!!

The Amazing Race

Friday, July 11 proved to be a day of fun and friendship for students in the Greencorps Youth program.  The morning session, led by mentors Charles and Bettie, went on a scavenger hunt in and around the school.  Faced with tasks such as getting a staff member to do the "D Low Shuffle" (and filming it!), recreating a scene from the movie "Titanic" and taking a selfie in front of the Eiffel Tower, some early hesitation quickly made way for excitement and an urgency to get the race going.  Six teams of two took off for an hour with strict instructions to complete all ten tasks on school grounds.  Jonnas and Mary were the winners, ten minutes ahead of the next group.  After reconvening, students shared their videos and pictures.  With the goal of creating unity, teamwork and making new friends, as well as thinking creatively and generally "outside the box", the activity was a clear success and will be repeated before the program ends on August 8.

Helen Keller Would Have Appreciated Social Security’s Efforts

June 27 is Helen Keller Day, a commemorative holiday established by President Jimmy Carter in 1980 on her 100th birthday. The first deaf and blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree, Helen Keller was a world-famous speaker, author, and advocate for people with disabilities. She undoubtedly would have appreciated all that Social Security does for the disabled community and their families.
