Being able to work one on one with local troubled youth and doing whatever one can to help them succeed in life is an everyday occurrence for District 300 Social worker Patricia Briones, her boss Don Wesemann and Carpentersville Police Social worker Griselda Hernandez. In no way is it an easy job but these individual are willing to do it and in more ways they are able to reap the rewards when they see the end result of all their hard work.

Most of their work goes unseen out of respect to the children and families they help. No one wants to be looked down upon because of their inability to properly care for themselves or their families and these local social workers work tirelessly to get the resources they need to help out in any way they can. From simple things like providing snacks in between meals and a chance to was dirty clothes to coordinating transportation to and from school or making sure they have a place to sleep and everything in between. Through state grants and help from local organizations they are able to do what they can to maximize the support they receive to help as many youths and individuals who may be in need. 

As a club we were all pretty astonished by the information that they discussed with us on Wednesday October 30th and it didn't take much to realize that we want to be a part of this and contribute in any way we can now and through the future. With this being said plans are in the works to help out and we will have more information later on the progress of our ideas to be had! Stay Tuned!
