The day didn’t start off like a typical Monday. After breakfast, we split up to go to various service sites and help out in different parts of the DC community. Some groups wrapped meals for the needy and others helped arrange tools for an environmental agency. Later in the day, we got a chance to check out different sites at the Smithsonian. We then had some lunch and met back up at the hotel to better understand how the congressional process worked. We heard from two different policy speakers on healthcare and then did a Congressional Simulation. At night we broke up into delegations and prepared for our lobbying visits!
