As part of my internship, I was tasked with completing 10 hours of service. This was not a hard task. I am involved in multiple organizations that do community service throughout the year. The two I logged community service hours with during the internship are 4-H and CLC.
My first community service project started in May. The Vilas Citizenship and Leadership Council painted an old basketball court at the Vilas School. Now the students can enjoy Four Square, Hopscotch, and a painted Obstacle Course. Three members of CLC, including me, finished the project on July 25, 2019.
The next project was the very next day. Two leaders and four officers from my 4-H club, including myself, organized mock interviews for the other members. We acted as judges, allowing the members to get used to being questioned or perfect their answers. We did this for three hours when members stopped showing up. In the following years, we are hoping to implement it across the county. I also participated in the county fairgrounds cleanup 10 days later.
My last volunteer project was at the local Salvation Army. I have volunteered in past summers, and I volunteered again for my last 4 hours of service. During those hours, I cleaned objects and hung clothes.
Throughout the year, I volunteer often. I have been a part of two organizations that have been recognized for their service at a statewide level. I enjoy doing things for my community in order to make it better.
