The 2013 year of Real Life in Salt Lake City is off to a great start!  We have an amazing group of volunteer mentors and the refugee teens from the Hser Ner Moo Welcome Center have been so fun to hang out with.  Take a look at some of the fun activities we have been doing so far this year!

Here is the first day at Real Life. We played “get to know you” games and learned a little bit about each other to start off a great year of Real Life!


Each team designed a flag and battled it out to trivial questions. 

We also learned about financial literacy. We played bingo and an intense game of pictionary to test our knowledge about all things finance. 

Ever made a volcano? We did! 
We made our own volcanoes and tested our skills of following directions. 

Estafanous, MJ, and Peter making their volcano!

We got to use spray paint, paint, and markers to come up with original ideas for the RL t-shirts this year.
(go to the Facebook group Real Life in Salt Lake City to vote for your favorite design!)

In addition to the many activities above, we were able to go rock climbing at Momentum, ice skating at the Gallivan Center, and so much more! 

We had so much fun in January and can’t wait for the rest of the year. 

Thanks so much for everyone’s help in starting this year off so great! 

From now on we’ll try to post a weekly recap of all the fun things we are doing and learning.
