I volunteer in different places. The first place I volunteer was at my own school. I help setting up for lunch and breakfast. Then I decided to volunteer at Starlight Elementary school as a Reading Buddy. I would get a group of students and help them read their book as well making sure that they understood what they were reading about. It was fun, reading to them. Sometimes it was hard to make them focus on what they where reading since they would talk with their friends. What I did was give them sometime to talk and then I would tell them that it’s time to focus on what they were reading. Afterwards I would read to them and have them read it to me in order for me to know that they where reading it correctly. During my summer break I decided to volunteer at the Science workshop. However I only volunteer for a few days since I wasn’t able to attend regularly. I would usually help kids with their projects and hold activities that they would be interested in.
I did some side volunteering that would benefit my community. I volunteer in helping cleaning our community with the Buddhist church. It was fun going through the community and picked up trash. Later when the rainy season came I volunteered to fill sandbags. The work was hard but knowing that I would be helping someone made everything easier
