Throughout My High School Experience, I Volunteer At Many

Throughout my high school experience, I volunteer at many places where I learned my skills and gained important knowledge. I volunteered at MEND, Youth Speak, Strength United, Mobilizing Communities for Healthy Relationships event, and organizing senior graduations for my school. I learned a lot from these opportunities, however, volunteering at Cesar Chavez Humanitas Academy for my Service Learning project was a unique experience. Furthermore, what made this experience unique was that I had the opportunity to learn networking, report writing, and time management skills that have helped me in the present and will help me in the future as well. To begin with, Cesar Chavez Humanitas Academy is the name of the high school I attended.†¦show more content†¦My 9th grade biology teacher also comforted me with words of advice to me about my nursing career path. It was nice knowing that I can still count on them whenever a necessity, emergency and/or even an achievement presents itself throughout my personal and academic path. Besides gaining networking skills, I also obtained report writing skills during my volunteer experience. How I mentioned before, counselor Lastre gave me a task of helping him with his students’ transcripts reports. At the beginning of the project, I was anxious about the outcomes at last, which is a usual feeling I get when I receive tasks either at work, at school, or in general, the reason might be my perfectionist attitude about returning excellent satisfactory results. My task was to transfer information such as grades, complete, incomplete, and needed classes, and the number of units completed to the sheets of 200 sophomore and junior students. Counselor Lastre provided me with directions and how to perform my task, I forced myself to grow confidence in me since I was worried about not finalizing or returning poor results at the end. I stayed committed, and as a result, I could finalize the assignment on time without facing obstacles within the process. Counselor Lastre was satisfied with my results, and thanked me for the help I provided since he was behind andShow MoreRelatedService Learning : A Good Place For All Of Us1604 Words   |  7 Pagesreflection to enrich learning experiences, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.
