4th Generation of Alumni Joins the Dorris Dann Kids Campus.
Not long ago, Simon Chen appeared in front of us at a church service at COS and told us how much he loves coming to the Dorris Dann Kids Campus. He spoke on why he loves coming to DDKC: friends he made, staff he completely trusted, and all the exciting activities he was able to participate in. That same day, Simon asked me for a job. Well, Simon Chen is now part of the Dorris Dann Kids Campus and has been since May 2018. Today, Simon is joining AmeriCorps and will become a Coach-Mentor to over 150 children at the Dorris Dann Kids Campus through our partnership with Up2Us Sports.
Joanne Tran started coming to Dorris Dann Kids Campus when she was in 6th grade. Once she graduated from middle school, she continued to volunteer during our summer program up until her junior year in High School. Joanne has said she appreciated the help with her homework and enjoyed the computer lab where the instructor created a fun environment and always gave good advice. Having her friends attend really made her love Kids Campus. Overall, the Dorris Dann Kids Campus was a good experience for Joanne.
Joanne is also joining Simon as a Coach-Mentor though Up2Us today. We are so excited to have such passionate individuals join us!
Joanne recently wrote, “As a staff, I like working here because I’m comfortable with everyone on the team. I also love working for Margarita, who has been super supportive of me since I came to the program when I was in 6th grade. I couldn’t ask for a better first job out of high school. Giving back is one of my goals in life, I’m thankful to do that at Dorris Dann Kids Campus.”
Join us as we celebrate the hiring of Simon and Joanne and welcome them to the Our Saviour Center and Dorris Dann Kids Campus family of employees!
