Angela Patch is a 17 year old student at Brenkwitz High School in Hayward. She volunteered with HARD at the Matt Jimenez Community Center Summer camp program. She was a shy young lady during staff training but once she started working with the youth, she really stepped out of her shell and shined.
This summer, Angela worked with our 6 and 7 years old summer campers known as the Sonics. She assisted the Recreation staff in teaching the kids how to play various sports and large group activities; and helped our participants with their arts and crafts activities, in the computer lab, the teen center and so much more.
Angela has proven to be a great leader. She was very vocal this summer and with any task asked of her by staff, she took charge and did an excellent job in seeing it through.
