Another great addition to Kid City this Fall is Katherine Lopez, an intern from USC’s School of Social Work. Katherine meets individually with students who need extra emotional and mental support and each Monday holds a group meeting that focuses on stress management activities and issues like how to handle grief. Katherine even volunteered as head security officer at Ultreya! — before her internship had begun! As an added bonus, Kid City staff meets weekly with Katherine and her supervisor, Sandra Hill-Glover (faculty at School of Social Welfare at USC, Holman UMC member, and board member of Holman CDC) to review individual cases and receive professional development.
