Last September 4th, DePaul University student from the Immigrant Youth in Chicago–Discover class visited our center in Little Village and were able to interact with many of our youth in a symposium-style session lead by our youth discussing the issue of the immigration process and growing up in Little Village. Today we received a few thank you notes from the DePaul students and we’re so happy to receive them that we thought we’d share them with you!
Universidad Popular was, hands down, one of my favorite organizations that we have visited during our class I loved being able to speak one-on-one with the kids. They are so adorable and creative, not to mention intelligent, it’s wonderful seeing them in an environment that benefits their learning. I love what this organizaation does for their community. It’s truly a wonderful thing. Thank you for spending that day with us and we hope to see you soon!
To Universidad Popular staff and members,
I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful time you offered myself and my DePaul colleagues! It was truly amazing to see how the community members all work together to help the community. Not to mention the activities the youth are given, like the “jumpin the border” imitation, that teach the youth to be compassionate and grateful. I would especially like to thank Santos and Adrian for helping out with the tour and being as interested in DePaul as we were in them! MUCHAS GRACIAS!
Thank you so very much for allowing our class to experienjce the wonderful things you do for the youth in your community. It was so amazing to tour your organization and see how your dedication has changed the lives of so many people. I felt so incredibly welcomed by everyone, and it was such a fun and enjoyable day! Thank you again! You truly are changing lives.
I’d like to thank you for allowing our Discover class to come in and see Universidad Popular and what you guys do. I was really moved to see how an entire community pitches in to put something like Universidad Popular together for their kids. You don’t see that willingness to help children that much.
Thank you again,
Thank you for allowing my Immigrant Youth in Chicago class to visit your organization. I met and talked with some very intelligents boys and I appreciate what your organization provides for them.I would like to thank you for allowing us to visit your organization. Discussing immigrant based topics from the youth’s perspective was very different from the other stories adults told us. I will definitely be interested in volunteering in your community!
I loved the time we spent at your organization and the opportunity to ask the youth questions about their community. Thank you for having us 🙂
Universidad Popular staff and volunteers,
Thank you for showing us and teaching us about your organization. I enjoyed learning about what it is you do and how you help the community. I loved being able to talk to the youth and answer all the questions they had. Hope to see you soon and best wishes!
Dear Universidad Popular,
Thank you for taking the time to meet with us! I really enjoyed the conversations that we had in our small groups! Feel free to stop by DePaul anytime!
