Maira: Helping to lighten the load

We started several new staff members this year, and one of them is our education assistant, Maira. She helps me with the ever-growing education program, and I’m very grateful for it. We’re excited to invite her to Beach Christmas 2017!

We now have more than 20 kids in our education program and five in school in our young adult program, and we needed help keeping track of their behavior, talking to teachers, checking on grades, covering books and most of all being available for homework.

Maira works part-time for us in the afternoon and in the morning she works for Santa Monica, one of the schools where several of our kids attend. Being an employee at Santa Monica allows her to easily check up on those students, speak with teachers and keep track of how each of our kids are doing.

Maira spends her weekday afternoons and Saturday mornings at our ministry house, available to help any one of our education kids and teens with what they might need to do. This allows our staff and BC team to spend time doing the rest of the jobs necessary to make our organization run properly.

Please help Maira enjoy her first Beach Christmas with us this year!
