Volunteering – 04/21/08
This time volunteering I started in with one group of kids but was asked to move to another room to help keep the kids quiet and well behaved during a presentation. Again I was surprised when I learned what the presentation would be on. Like last Wednesday the topic of the day was sustainability. The presentation was by District Energy of the Twin Cities – a non-profit corporation that provides heating and cooling in the city through renewable energy sources. I was more eager to see the presentation than the children it was made for.
The presentation went well. A few students were obviously paying attention and a couple even took notes. This was probably because the students were informed before the presentation that a game would follow. This was a great idea – the game got quite competitive. Then we all got pamphlets and green rubber bracelets (just in time for Earth Day the next day). So, it was a good day of volunteering.
