I had such a great time at the Forum on Tuesday! It was so inspiring to hear everyone’s dreams for the DLC, and I loved having the opportunity to interact with other tutors. So thank you Yashna and the VST for putting the Forum together!
Like most people, I dream of the DLC having more resources in order to have more of an opportunity to serve our community. I believe that one of the most pressing services that we need to offer (and I heard this from the students too) is some sort of daycare availability. One of the most practical possible services that I heard about is videotaping workshops/refresher courses and making them available to people who couldn’t attend but were interested. And the service that I dream about the most is learning how to write a grant so that I could write a grant to fund the expansion of the DLC into a local women’s shelter. I heard lots of other great ideas too – I’ll email them to one of the VST members, so they can be shared with the whole community.
