Reflection on the Service Learning Symposium:
After viewing the GW Theatre students' presentation, it really opened my eyes to thinking about the different ways to engage others with social issues. Not everyone is going to be interested in reading article upon article, or watching a documentary, or watching the news, or even engaging in service. However, if people are interested in theater then it may be a great medium for communicating about social issues and engaging with a wider audience. Also, I think theater as an art form allows for a greater expression of the different complexities that come with social problems in a visual way. Also they can be acted out with different interpretations to show the many consequences one action could have. I definitely think art is an under utilized platform of advocating for different issues but it should be considered and integrated into social justice work.

I also appreciated listening to presentations from the HSSJ Fact Field Fiction class on both intergenerational relationships of service and the involvement of older, age 60+, adults in service. For me intergenerational relationships have been a very impactful part of my life and I have previous experience of serving a population of older adults by playing bingo with them. It was interesting to see what the group found to be the impact of intergenerational relationships on service and just on individuals generally. I also enjoyed listening to part of another group's presentation on the involvement of older adults in a volunteer capacity. I found it especially interesting that for many older adults the reasons why they might volunteer are also reasons why they may not volunteer. For example the reasoning of time, older adults may feel like they have a lot of free time on their hands now that they have retired so they should use it to give back, but on the other hand, they also may feel like the amount of time they have left to live is short, and question whether or not they should spend that limited time volunteering or doing something else.
Symposium:
Lunch Session: I found the lunch session very entertaining and much more insightful than past symposiums. I believe the plays and monologues of being different types of immigrants was a perspective that I rarely ever hear. The Theatre for social change group put on a fantastic play. Most times we hear immigration nowadays it is mostly about Hispanic immigrants but this one involved Jewish, German, and Russian immigrants.

Showcase session:
In the showcase session, I presented for HSSJ3152, where we talked about the differing motivations to volunteer between older adults and younger adults and the feelings they have when asked about serving together. I also hosted another presentation for HSSJ 3100W where we talked about the New Venture Competition hosted at GW and entrepreneurship education. We formulated a pre-test and post-test survey to measure the different skills that the participants may learn or further develop throughout the competition. I also viewed a presentation on adding green spaces to urban areas, and how it positively affects mental health. Overall, a very enriching experience and impressed with my peers work.
