Lessons/suggestions It was tough to get people to participate in the project simply because the program is run on Friday mornings, which is when many people have class.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS
Comments We have a lot of fun with this project. It is a great way for us to meet other people in the community and the kids are so cute. It may give people an idea of whether they would like to work with children during the course of their career.
