Meeting with group about creating powerpoint for presentation and discussing final solutions.
My group and I met in Gelman Library room 507 and discussed in great detail how our presentation for the competition on Friday would be and we essentially finalized our entire project. It was a very detailed meeting that required a lot of communication, collaboration, and planning. In addition, we started working on our presentation for the competition.
This was the second half of my service for FYDP. I really enjoyed working with the kids at driven to succeed, and am even thinking about doing it again outside of FYDP.
Being the second time I went to this organization I felt a closer bond with the students and was able to help better. It was really nice to give back to the kids and help them further their education. I was able to help them with their homework and other works the organization gives them including reading, writing and math.
Went for an hour for after school snack compost shift. A lot less busy than usual for a morning shift!
Food Tidy Shift where loaded up van, packaged sandwiches, and washed dishes
I helped kids with homework and math practice, helped clean the building, and helped oversee recess time. The kids were great, and I had a lot of fun. We are going back this Thursday to volunteer some more.
Helped the children with homework and played sports following this. We cleaned up their study area before helping them with their work.
My groupmates and I were able to clean the classrooms while also tutoring, playing, and building relationships with the kids.
Taught our fist class with my partner to fifth graders
I arrived a little earlier. It was sad to hear that there were suppose to be 4 volunteers but I was the only one showed up. We prepared the food that were going to get cooked in the demo in the following markets. I never had chance to hold knives for more than an hour. It was fun and interesting. Now I smeel like ginger and asparagus!
