Each semester there is at least one student who struggles to complete the required 28 hours of community service learning with a local community partner. While the best thing to do, of course, is to complete the commitment made to the community partner, if it's not possible for some reason, I like to offer some alternatives.
One of my students took advantage of one of those options this semester, and she shared with me the letters that she wrote to unaccompanied minors and that she sent to They Are Children. She gave me permission to share them here.
