Throughout quarter two, Housing on Merit provided over 570 hours of
after-school programming across our communities.
Volunteers from San Diego State University’s College of Education
developed a month-long Art Camp for youth at Rio Vista Apartments in
San Diego, Calif. Camp participants were encouraged to explore different
art mediums such as paint, collage, and sculpture. They then created their
own masterpieces for the community art show, held at the Learning
Center. The Art Camp was a success and garnered interest from residents
of all ages. All participants wrote thank-you letters to the camp volunteers
to express their appreciation for being able to participate in the Art Camp.
