ARW is a great experience for those who are looking to make a change within the community. In doing the Redemption Reintegration Services program, I’ve learned interdependence is something that should not be undervalued. It is extremely important to make individuals feel comfortable and a great way to do that is to provide them a purpose in the space. Sometimes your purpose is to create purpose. In working with the youth, you will learn that being selfless is always rewarded, in small ways and large ones. In order to change a life you must be open to change yourself. Not everyone comes from the same place and it is important to acknowledge that. What is unified among people is that everyone wants to be successful. If you are able to give someone else the feeling of success, you yourself have completed the goal of this project.
