Epiphany School thanks Aria Miles
Posted 8/31/2011
Each year Epiphany relies upon 150+ volunteers to help keep the school running along with our faculty and staff. The school would not function without the support of these very special friends to Epiphany. The same is true for the summer, and this issue of Always Learning highlights one.
Aria Miles is a rising sophomore at Princeton University. She is part of the Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS) program through the Pace Center for Civic Engagement. Each year PICS partners with 70 organizations throughout the country and provides each of them with an intern for 10 weeks in the summer. Ms. Miles was Epiphany's lucky intern this summer, and we were thrilled to have her.

Ms. Miles spent her 10 weeks in Boston living first at Mather Court and then at 232 Centre Street with other interns. She was invaluable this summer, as our front line person at the reception desk, coordinating the intern move to 232 Centre Street, scheduling home visits for incoming 5th graders, and supporting the B-SAFE summer program among many other tasks. In Ms. Miles's own words, "I try my best to meet whatever needs are expressed by Epiphany, B-SAFE, and the community members who walk through Epiphany's doors." Ms. Miles was a shining star this summer for Epiphany, and we sure did keep her busy!
Ms. Miles was drawn to the Epiphany School internship because she plans to pursue a career in education and thought it would be interesting working in a school for the summer. She said she accomplished this goal and learned a lot about the operations of a school outside of the classroom. She left us after 10 weeks with this reflection of the school, "Epiphany provides a very unique opportunity to the children of Dorchester. The concept of a tuition-free private school with 12-hour school days and such a great sense of community amazes me. The staff are all dedicated to providing the students with the best that they have to offer, and I think that it is nice for the students to see that they go to a school where staff is so caring, giving, and committed. Seeing graduates come back to the school to work and visit on a regular basis shows me that the bonds formed at Epiphany last longer than their four years here."
We thank Ms. Miles for her hard work, dedication, and commitment to Epiphany School. As she returns to Princeton to start her sophomore year and looks forward to becoming a math teacher, we know she will always be a part of the Epiphany family.

Legacies Intern Laurent Cote reports:
Posted August 19, 2011

"It has been an exciting summer here at Legacies. As advocacy intern, I've been working with Executive Director Channapha Khamvongsa and our many wonderful volunteers to educate key decision makers in Washington about the UXO crisis in Laos. We've made real progress in highlighting the importance of this issue and the need for increased U.S. support. One moment that stands out for me was the publication of a letter from six former U.S. Ambassadors and Chiefs of Mission to Laos endorsing Legacies of War's funding requests and calling on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to reaffirm her commitment to this issue by visiting Laos. I was fortunate enough to be involved in the process leading up to the publication of this letter and I am encouraged by the response it has received from State Department officials. All in all, I have had a truly wonderful experience at Legacies. My warmest thanks go out to our friends, volunteers, the Board of Directors and of course to Channapha for welcoming me so generously into the organization."

PICS Intern wins Harold Willis Dodds Prize

Elizabeth (Liz) Borges of Washington, D.C.,  a  summer 2008 PICS intern at Bread for the City, was presented with the Harold Willis Dodds Prize at Class Day. The award recognizes the senior who best embodies the qualities of Princeton's 15th president, Harold Dodds, "particularly in the qualities of clear thinking, moral courage, a patient and judicious regard for the opinions of others, and a thoroughgoing devotion to the welfare of the University and to the life of the mind." Borges, a psychology major and a certificate candidate in American studies, was the student co-chair of the Alcohol Coalition Committee and helped plan a two-day Ivy League student leader symposium on high-risk drinking. She created and implemented the "Faces of Princeton" poster campaign, which enlisted a diverse group of student leaders to speak frankly about alcohol use on campus. She has been a leader in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, was a Sustained Dialogue moderator since her freshman year and also participated in a Community-Based Learning Initiative project that examined how food availability affects the urban poor in New Jersey.
