Community service

How did your community service work help the community?

I was able to advise walkers of the leukemia and lymphoma walk that the end was at city hall.

What were your initial reactions upon hearing that you would be engaging in a community service project?

I was excited because I have always done some form of service to others

How did it make you feel to give your time and energy to others?

I felt proud and honored to help others.

What did you learn about yourself, the people around you, and the service site?

I learned that organizing a service event on such a grand scale is very complicated and requires many volunteers and helpers.

What stands out as the best and/or most trying experiences that occurred while engaging in your community service project? What did you learn from these experiences?

I mostly enjoyed seeing the happiness in the walkers faces when they reached the us on the bridge. They felt that they had made a real accomplishment.

How did engaging in this project relate to your education and the larger issues in society?

This project taught me that even the simplest of events couldn’t be accomplished without the help of volunteers.

How did your community service experience relate to the “Leadership and Service” session?

Once divided into groups, we had to follow specific instructions in order to preform the requested service. This shows both leadership and service.

How has your community service experience changed your thinking, attitudes, and actions towards others, yourself, the community, and community service work as a whole?

This community service taught me to be more humble, and that I should truly dedicate my time to the community.

How has your community service experience impacted you personally? What is the most important thing you learned about yourself throughout this experience?

I learned that I should value my community and the people within it. The is because nothing would be in existence if someone had not provided service to assist.

Were you satisfied with your experience overall? Why or why not?

Although It was a long a tiring night, spending it with my friends and fellow new Yorkers made it worth it.

Do you see yourself staying involved in the community during your college and adult years? Why or why not?

Yes I do, because I truely enjoyed it.

Sum up your service-learning experience in a one-or two-sentence headline:
The finish line is at city hall.
