Starting last summer, volunteer Hanna Tulchinsky, class of 2020 at Greenwich Academy, has been interviewing students participating in Carver programs. The initial stories were of those students who attended Carver’s 2018 Summer Enrichment Program for grades K to 5 (ages 5 to 13) located at the Carver Community Center. Since then Hanna has continued to profile students in Carver’s after school programs this year.
Hanna’s storytelling is available on this dedicated Carver blog. Hanna’s reporting gives us all a glimpse into the goals and accomplishments of Carver kids.
Additionally, Hanna has created thank-you videos for Carver donors and other videos that document Carver events.
Hanna’s good work caught the attention of the Greenleaf Foundation at Greenwich Academy, which just awarded Carver a grant of $1,000 to support Hanna’s continued volunteer work for Carver, particularly her reporting and videos this coming summer.
Established in the year 2000, the Greenleaf Foundation’s mission is “to effect positive change in the community by funding programs that focus on issues impacting young people in need, especially girls.” Carver is grateful to Greenwich Academy for encouraging volunteerism among its students and now for the school’s foundation providing financial support of Hanna’s excellent work to promote the Carver mission and capture the stories of Carver kids.
