MY SERVICE PROJECT
My service Project
William Penn University
I have had the opportunity to volunteer for the last several weeks. I had never really
volunteered before, so I knew that this was my opportunity to do some community service to help others. I have found through the experience that I really like to volunteer, so in the near future I will probably volunteer again, rather than doing it for a class.
Doing service projects is a great way to get involved with the community. There are always people and businesses looking for help, and it is usually easy to find a way to help. When I had to do volunteer work, I was excited because I had never really volunteered for a long period of time. It was very interesting, because it actually made me feel like a better person for helping someone in the community.
I volunteered at a church near my house. I chose that place, because I thought that it would help me be able to work with children. I love working with children every chance that I can. While I was volunteering I learned many things that I didn’t know and how to talk to younger kids and teach them. I got to look at 4 and 5 year olds, to see what subject we were recently learning in class, children learn very quickly, at a young age so i had a great opportunity to see that first hand. I feel motivated to do activities and different events that have to do with young children or adults, but I am a people person so anything I can do to connect with helps with them.
I thought that 10 hours of volunteering was a perfect amount of time. It gave me enough time to actually get to know the people we were volunteering for, but it was not so long, that it took forever. I started my volunteering hours as soon as I could, so that way I knew I would have plenty of time to complete them.
My family has always influenced me to become a better person, and volunteering really...
