Volunteer Process so far

After hearing from the representatives for the various volunteer organisations in class I thought about where would be a good place for me to volunteer at. I knew I wanted to do something that would be enjoyable as well as very rewarding. I really enjoy working with kids so I decided that either Children's Hospital or St. Anne's Place would be good options for this. Both of these would be enjoyable for me as I could spend time simply hanging out with the kids and helping them with anything they might need.

I got approval for Children's Hospital so I have begun the application process and am working toward the many steps to becoming a volunteer at this hospital. I have currently finished the online application as well as the recomendation survey. I am now working towards getting the required tests and medical records needed for becoming a volunteer at Children's.

community experience

I have a done a large amount of volunteering in the past few years of high school. I was a member of the Student council, Interact Club, as well as National Honor Society. My involvement in these clubs have given me opportunities to volunteer and school activities as well as the local food pantry and hospital.
