Roxanne Smith Parks, Director of the South East Texas Foster Grandparent Program and Co-Director of the Experience Corps, a Senior Corps Demonstration Project, says that when she was first asked about introducing journalling into the daily activities of her program's volunteers, she was "the biggest skeptic ... I didn't think it would work." She was worried about the time it would take, how her volunteers would respond, how the journals would work for people of diverse educational backgrounds and, mostly, about the value of doing it.
