Ten teens paired off to practice interviewing one another as part of the training for Know Your Neighbor. Know Your Neighbor is a summer initiative of CDF’s to increase connectedness among teens, their peers, and neighbors. This initiative involves walking door-to-door and asking residents how they feel about Clarkston, their gifts and talents, and generally getting to know what one another. Each walk is supervised by 2 adults from CDF.
During the last week in June, teens were trained on how to talk with people, ask questions, listen and take detailed notes. They started exploring their neighborhoods July 1 and will walk the rest of the month. The group has already met with 12 families and will continue to go from neighborhood to neighborhood. Be on the lookout and say hi to your neighbors!
