The Latin American Center is a recreational building for youth. It's full of actives for them to do to stay out of trouble and it has been a good experience these last years working with them. It's summer jobs so it's just a temporary job but can be compared to as summer camp for the youth. We started off the day with youth eating breakfast then break off into the different tracks that the kids signed up for (e.g. photography, mural design, video production) and have a short break midday for lunch. Then after lunch the kids return back to their groups. Once a week the staff would gather at the end to talk about progress and how to display the children's work but during that short time there would be many disagreements and no compromise. There were several times where the staff workers were late or took days off which made things go slow because there was only a few staff members and everyone was assigned to a duty.
