Meet the Day-Riverside Teen Squad
by Day-Riverside Teen Squad
Hi, my name is Emily, I am a junior at West High School. I am a teen volunteer at the Day- Riverside library branch. For my project this year I focused on the menstrual movement, a topic which I am very interested in. There is a stigma and taboo against menstruation causing people to not talk about Periods and the problems that menstruaters can face. Period poverty is just one thing that is a serious problem for menstruaters' health and overall women's equality. I had noticed that there was a lack of books on periods in our library's collection. I worked on creating a list of books that were all about the menstrual movement and about breaking the taboos surrounding periods, which were selected and purchased. My project was to create a bookmark with the list of books on it and with a short explanation of what is in the book. This project means a lot to me and I am very grateful to have the opportunity to do this. I hope that my project will help people talk more about and better understand periods and the menstrual movement.
My name is Anagha Rao, and I am a rising senior at Skyline High School. This is my second summer volunteering with Teen Squad, and I am part of the Day-Riverside Branch. My project is a 30-Day fitness challenge for teens to encourage them to stay healthy and stay physically fit. After I noticed that there was a lack of books related to exercise and teens, I created a bookmark with a list of books for teens to learn more about exercise and how to get enough physical activity. In the future, I aspire to work in the healthcare industry and share my passion for nutrition and wellness with others. In my free time, I love to write stories, read mystery books such as Agatha Christie, and play tennis with my friends.
Hello, my name is Rocio and I was a senior at West High school. I am a volunteer for Teen squad. My project was focused on providing financial services for students. As a lower income student, money has always been a concern for me. I was constantly looking for scholarships, volunteer opportunities and anything that would help me. It was difficult to find credible and beneficial sites, especially online. I want to provide the necessary information for any student who is in need of financial aid. I created a blog post with all the information in one place. Along with pamphlets with basic information. I hope that I can help anybody who wants to continue college.
