A Warm Smile is the Universal Language of kindness
Amazing Tutors' Volunteers bring Compassion to the Lives of Others
When it comes to creating a culture of caring in Downtown Vancouver Eastside and Surrey, the Sufi Meditation Center and its volunteers lead by example. With their support, the Amazing Tutor's Children's Foundation was able to serve a warm lunch at the Living Room Drop-In Center. We worked in their commercial kitchen and served a warm plate of lentils, steamed rice, garden salad, and a piece of birthday cake to the neighbors and guests of the Downtown Eastside. As our foundation offers opportunities to develop leadership skills to youth attending our programs, the Sufi Meditation Center and the Living Room Drop-In's leadership and contributions are an excellent example of people working together.
The Sufi Meditation Center is specialized in Mystic Sufi Whirling, Angelic Healing, Energy Therapy and Sufi Meditation Muraqabah. Their goal is to promote mystical awareness through Sufi Meditation. Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there is not anyone who does not appreciate compassion and kindness. Our host, the Lookout Emergency Aid Society, a charitable organization, opened the Living Room Drop-In Center in 1993 in the Downtown Eastside next to Oppenheimer Park. As reflected in its name, the intention was to create a social space for people living in local SRO's who live without a living room or other common space. Over the years the Living Room Drop-In Center evolved to offer thousands of life skill opportunities, leisure activities, social functions and food programs. The minimal barrier program was designed to help protect its members who live with various mental challenges. With up to 7,000 unique individuals accessing the programs in a single year, the Living Room has served as an inclusive community space for people in the neighborhood. In order to align with Vancouver Coastal Health's 2nd Generation Strategy, the Drop-In is changing to become a community hub that provides a safe space offering socialization, an active resource for a broader constituency and offers referrals to health organizations, community partners, and services.
In October 2016 the Living Room was renamed the Powell Street Getaway, which now serves at a Vancouver Coastal Health funded Mental Health and Substance Use community resource center. The Getaway offers a safe consumption site, peer-lead programs, meals, activities and supports for anyone who may need them. The expansion of services is designed to create the space as a hub where many services are offered, with particular emphasis on supporting health referrals and outcomes. Lookout staff actively refer people in need to the Connections Clinic, operated by Vancouver Coastal Health, which is across the street. These programs will continue Lookout Society's evolution to serve the changing needs of the most vulnerable and marginalized people in the Downtown Eastside. The new Drop-in will have a greater health focus and include new programming for seniors, addicts, women, LGBTQ and aboriginal communities.
Here at Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation, we are excited with Lookout's new challenge to re-make the Living Room Drop-in with the same inclusive and minimal barrier approach that they have had in the past, while offering more services and resources to help individuals make their way to a better future. This is an incredible vision. We encourage youth of high school age to become actively involved in positive activities and outreach throughout the Vancouver and Surrey community. Amazing Tutors aspires to build an international youth community committed to discovering who they are and the power to make changes that they can implement. Our Youth Leadership Development Program fosters the desire and capacity to affect positive change both in their communities and own lives.
The Youth Leadership Development Program is meeting the needs of youth by developing leadership skills. The Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation focuses on charitable works, community service activities, education, fundraising, and organized sports. The importance of leadership is emphasized through education and teamwork. The Youth Leadership Development Program builds and instills confidence, cooperation, discipline, hope, and self-esteem.
Many thanks to the Sufi Meditation Center and Lookout Emergency Society for their long-standing dedication, excellence in customer service, and generosity to our community. We feel extremely blessed to have been given the opportunity by them to engage with the community in such an important way, and to have youth in the community volunteering. At Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation, we believe that providing our students with positive and community based volunteer activities is an essential part of their development growing into responsible and capable citizens.
We look forward to partnering together in the future. Together we create a world of caring and consideration in our community.
A Kind Word from an Amazing Student
"Amazing Tutors is one of my favorite places to be. It is my favorite place because I have been excelling in my academic classes ever since I have started coming here and it has been two years already. It has been the most wonderful two years. Now, let me tell you why Amazing Tutors has changed my life for the better.
It all started two years ago when I was in grade 8. I had just come home to my dad talking about how he had met a representative of Amazing Tutors and had been informed that Amazing Tutors was opening a community-based tutoring center in Bear Creek. My dad came straight home and told my mom about Amazing Tutors. My mom instantly agreed because she knew how bad my math marks were. She could not handle my marks anymore so she decided to send my brothers and I to Amazing Tutors. On the following Monday we joined Amazing Tutors. This is how I got to know about this friendly place.
Amazing Tutors has changed my academic life for the better. My math is better and there has been some improvement in my academic classes. When I first came to Amazing Tutors, I started off with a C+ in math and now I am getting A's and B's. Meanwhile when I first started to come, I was getting a low B in English and now I am a grade 10 student who is taking an English 11 course. Even though, I know taking an English 11 course will be challenging, I know Amazing Tutors will help me get through it. I look forward to continuing my journey at Amazing Tutors and I also look forward to excelling in my work habits and study efficiency skills."
