Letters from the Lunchroom
Letters from the Lunchroom is a podcast that shows you a new side of Communities In Schools of Mid-America, a non-profit which provides support services for at-risk students. As someone who has worked with non-profits for the past 10 years, Victoria Partridge knows that people who engage with non-profits have a story to tell, and she wants to hear that story. From students to staff members, and alumni to volunteers, Victoria connects with people of all backgrounds to discover the journey they took which brought them to Communities In Schools. Join us in the lunchroom to hear these stories, which are always touching, occasionally heart-breaking, and often surprising. In this episode, we talk with Donna Bussell, Tribal Services Director in Anadarko, Oklahoma. Donna shares with us some of the important aspects of working with a majority native community, as well as the challenges, and why she encourages kids to "become their ancestor's wildest dreams."
