Last week I got the opportunity to volunteer with one of my university's organizations at a daycare with pre-school age kids. When I was in high school I did tons of volunteer hours with a local Hospice thrift store & I've really missed giving back to the community. The little kids were absolutely adorable & I was having as much fun as they were doing arts & crafts, eating cupcakes, and playing outside. It's such a rewarding experience!
I'd just like to pass along the opportunity to volunteer to be a counselor this Summer for the Fresh Air Fund, a summer camp in Fishkill,NY. The program provides a life changing experience for 2,000 low-income New York City children. Counselors have the opportunity to make a difference in a child's life along with sharing fun times like campfires, watersports, and crafting sessions. If I wasn't studying abroad, it's definitely a way I'd enjoy spending my summer! If it sounds like something you may be interested in, please check out the site!
