Semester of Service - Adventure Central



Ellie Marie Ryan


This poster reflects research conducted as part of a course project designed to give students experience in the research process.



Adventure Central is an after-school program that focuses on positive youth development, health and wellness, and interaction with science and nature. Adventure Central assists students with any homework or school assistance needed as well as provides structured activities for after school hours. Adventure Central is a partnership between The Ohio State University, 4-H Youth Development, and 5 Rivers Metroparks of Dayton. It is located in the West Dayton community and continues to improve the lives of the students and the families it serves. This semester, as part of the Semester of Service Program, I am working at Adventure Central as a Group Leader. I am working on lesson and activity planning for a small group of students. By working in the West Dayton area, I am allowed the opportunity to immerse myself in the community.
