We had our first tour of The Covenant House in Newark NJ. The building is fairly a new addition. We were led around by the friendly staff who told us about their responsibilities with the kids.
It was not only interesting but extremely enlightening to discover all of the tasks these people have to juggle. They are not only employees of The Covenant House but also mentors, teachers, friends, providers and so much more. Their responsibilities include cooking for the kids, teaching them how to interview, providing them with the appropriate attire, and even extending themselves to connect on a personal level to help the kids discover their potential. The most amazing part is that many of them are volunteers.
