Webb Middle School School

I volunteered for the ENCORE Program hosted at Webb Early College Prep Academy. I am part of the UT Academic Counselors Association and we provided volunteer hours to serve food to the families who who were attended the conference that day.
This is my third time doing the event and is one of my favorite volunteer opportunities. Because I work at a university, the mission of ENCORE and the mission of my organization are similar and I love knowing that we are actively providing services in middle school that allow students to know that higher education can be obtained.

Lovelys @ Puerto Rico Rises

Relief Drive for Puerto Rico, sponsored by Puerto Rico Rises and Casa Columbia
I worked with my friend Francesca Ramirez to shop for items and create individual toiletry kits to be delivered to survivors of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Our part was very little as it was the dedicated people of Puerto Rico rises who collected and stored all the donations.
Francesca and I both commented on how fortune our city was during Hurricane Harvey so it is important that we support our brothers and sisters in other places.

Supplier Intelligence - McCombs Success Scholars

I volunteered for ENCORE ( "Engaging Our Community for College Readiness") Student & Family Conference at Webb Early College Prep Academy as part of the Academic Counselors Association. Webb is an under-resourced school that has 90% + students whose parents did not go to college. The purpose of this program, and the mission of the school as a whole, is to make sure college is part of their typical vocabulary and that they know that college can be a goal if they decide that's the direction they wan to go.
Our primary goal was to serve a Thanksgiving lunch as part of their lunch entertainment. We fed more than 400 people and even though the food wasn't the purpose of the program, we all knew that we were a part of making this day a success for the attendees and the school.

Gave 3.00 hours between 11/11/2016 and 11/15/2016 with First-Year Experience, First-year Interest Groups (FIGs) - Fall 2016, McCombs FIGs Fall 2014, McCombs FIGs Fall 2015, McCombs FIGs Fall 2016, McCombs School of Business, School of Undergraduate Studies (UGS), Taking Inventory, The University of Texas at Austin
FIG Performance Measurement #63710

We spent the afternoon setting up and serving at the Thanksgiving lunch that was part of the ENCORE College Awareness Program. It took place at Webb Middle School. Students were invited to bring their families to learn about getting ready for college. Our job was to serve the Thanksgiving meal that was the social/entertainment part of the day. We served over 400 meals.
