Summer 2017

Organization: Sweet Water Foundation, Chicago, IL

Sponsor: Doebele Community Service Fellowship

” During this week of my internship, I started mentoring a group of students from different public schools of Chicago who are interested in architecture.

We have begun discussions about the future of the Perry Ave Commons. Our conversations centered on the design of a pocket park for the community. The students have started to draw their ideas and prepare for their next presentation to the staff.

It is exciting to see young teens get involved and be part of the future of an already great organization.”
