that I just had to do. We met with community members, different
organizations, and got a sense of what it was like to live there. STUDENT: Whether it was
help renovating a house, cleaning up the neighborhood, that’s a way where I can just get into my field without the
classroom. DR. SCHWARTZ: So they’re understanding the community from a variety of perspectives. STUDENT:

people in my life that took the time out of their day to care for me and a lot of
those people were social workers. DR. SCHWARTZ: Now you’re a big 8th grader. Four more years you’re going where? STUDENT: Miami. STUDENT: It just felt natural. I felt like I just want to do this for the rest of my life. DR. DANTLEY: A great group of people who are committed to
