Our volunteers make a great difference in the lives of our students.This month we want to recognize volunteer Patrick Trainor whose involvement in our programs is proof of the positive impact volunteering can make in a community.
Patrick began volunteering as a tutor for the Family Education Program in February. His kindness and positivity quickly won our kids over. By the end of the program Patrick had cultivated strong relationships with our FEP youth and parents alike.
After the final session of the Family Education Program, Patrick gave his time to our English-as-a-Second-Language Program. He has volunteered for every cycle of English classes starting out as an Assistant Instructor and moving into the Lead Instructor position soon after.
In addition to volunteering for our ESL Program this summer, Patrick has also dedicated his time to our our Summer FEP camps and In-Home Summer Tutoring Program.
Outside of being a dedicated BLC volunteer and positive role model for our BLC youth participants, Patrick is also a scientist and PhD student at UofL.
