Coming from almost exclusively direct service positions prior to my VISTA term I have struggled with adjusting to more desk time and less face to face interactions. That's not to say I haven't had ample opportunities for outreach and developing some truly meaningful partnerships but being at a desk for any extended amount of time was quite new to me. As the service months go on however, I have seen indirect service build the foundations of a project that could eventually expand beyond my office and serve fourteen counties in New York state. The impact of that could mean school interventions for hundreds of students across the state, providing them the tools to be more successful not only in school but in life. Seeing the growth of this project and working with my supervisor, all of LawNY and our amazing community has shown me the importance of all those days at a desk.
