Pros: helping children with art
Cons: pulls at your heart strings
I began volunteering here. I now facilitate the groups. I run two art groups weekly in two homeless shelters with children from the ages 3-11. We have different arts and crafts each time and we have 5-8 children with us each group.
It can be stressful with a group of children with different ages but it is so beautiful watching them and their processes of art unfold in a time that is so tough.
