Service 11/28/2013

Of the 21 hours of service, 13 hours was spent at a local foster care home called Serenity. While I as there, I watched over numerous children from infants to teenagers. The most memorable of these children was a little boy named Kyle. Kyle was so shy when I first met him but we shared a common interest of taking care of others. He was intrigued by the way babies were fed and even how diapers were changed. He told me one day, while watching me feed a newborn, that he wanted to be the best big brother. I’ll never forget Kyle and still get to see him whenever I volunteer. He has also taught me that every child is special and needs a family to love and take care of them.The last 8 hours of volunteer was at my mother’s school ( she is a teacher ) Walnut Elementary. I ran errands for the assistant principle and visited many classrooms and helped the teachers reorganize their rooms. I also made new bulletin boards throughout the main halls, in the main office, in the teachers lounge, and in other classrooms. I have been helping Walnut Elementary ever since I remember ( my mom has taught there for over 20 years) and each year I learn that it is very rewarding to help the people around you and it makes you feel better inside.

 

Volunteering at my mothers school over spring break has helped me to notice that I am effective at communication and execution. Some weaknesses I have include that I am easily distracted by other things going on.
