I thought it was very interesting to see how the Grassroots leaders we able to administer lessons about HIV/AIDs and STIs in a fun manner that also educates people at the same time.
Learning the statistics about the HIV/AIDS epidemic was eye opening. I was able to learn more details and able to approach hard topics like these in ways to directly teach kids in the community. This new non profit is recently established and only has more growth and positive impacts to come.
I really enjoyed working with Grassroots this spring. I went into sixth grade classrooms every Friday and taught the students about health.
Moved plants down to the classroom. Assisted with compost as well.
Volunteered with Lucky Dog while they hosted a puppy party at the Microsoft store in Tyson’s mall. I looked after the dogs while customers and employees played with them. Lucky Dog had a table set up with information about how to adopt a dog and donate to the organization.

As a former mentor, I was able to attend a current mentor meeting and provide feedback, insights, and advice from my experience. It was great to meet with the new mentors and try to help them solve in class issues as well as develop professionally. The GWSB mentor program provides great resources to first-year students
Bought and then delivered food to the colonial harvest drive. It reminded me of the canned food drive we had at my high school that was a really big deal and we all loved giving, especially at this time of year.
Amazing experience, loved being involved. AFSP is a wonderful and extremely powerful organization.
Worked with Athletes to play a unified kickball game. It was a fun way to connect with others and made me think of my cousin who also participates in special olympics in North Carolina.
