I chose the community learning section so i would have set time in my schedule designated to volunteering and getting involved with the community. I've wanted to volunteer here in the cities but havent worked it into my schedule yet. At home I've volunteered at our hospital. I think volunteering and getting involved is very important for everyone to do. I chose the learning component because it will force me to get up and get out and become involved with the community. With so many organizations in the Minneapolis area, I look forward to hearing about them in this class. I thought it would be a good idea to hear about different organizations instead of just volunteering at a hospital like I have done at home the past few years. I look forward to finding a unique organization in this GIANT city.
