Teens help homeless kids

Teens from an alternative school for problem students have learned that they can be helpers for even needier kids. The Orange County Register writes:

The kids from Santiago Creek alternative education school want to be needed.

The kids from Project Hope School for homeless children need to be wanted.

Both the big kids and the little kids get what they want and need – from each other.

The Santiago Creek students volunteer as art and science classroom aides to the kids at Project Hope. For many of them, what started out as a way to earn a day off from classroom work has evolved into something that goes beyond community service.

It’s a sweet story.
