I collaborated with other volunteers to ensure that no one stole the items that were being auctioned to raise funds for homeless children.
Today I revisited the Boys and Girls Club to help out once again. I helped to facilitate the kids in playing in the game room, dinner procedures, clean up, and setting up for an event to take place the next day. I was able to explain to the kids how to play certain games like pool and ping pong, and discipline them when necessary! Overall, it was an enjoyable experience, and great to again see the impact I make on their lives.
Cleaning up trash in West Campus was a laid-back way to care for the community right next to campus.
The event was called College 101. This event is sponsored by my organization in college, HBSA, and we bring high school kids from disadvantaged school districts and show them the importance of a college education. During the hours that I volunteered I was heading a tour and also helping serving lunch to the kids that went there. Overall, the experience was very rewarding, and I hope to be able to do it again next semester.
Really enjoyed this experience. I was able to help children at the Boys and Girls Club. The kids participated in various activities that I helped to facilitate and partake in. Such activities included painting, volleyball, gameroom, watching movies, and more. It was clear to me how my decision to help out these kids impacted their lives.
I volunteered at a haunted house so that the children of the predominantly Hispanic and Black neighborhood could have a fun a safe time on Halloween night.
AMA members got the chance to let the larger dogs out for some exercise!
