Serving the Community

I worked on various projects to complete my community service hours.

The first event I volunteered for was the Ogallala Commons Youth Entrepreneur Fair. This was actually a very pleasant and fun learning experience from me. I had the opportunity to watch multiple youth from the area high schools pitch their business plan. After they presented their plan they set up booths displaying their business a the business fair. Two gentlemen and I served as the judging panel and we got to decide who placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the competition. It was a tough decision for we were actually quite impressed by the work these youth brought forth. I had no experience on the topic of business plans going in, but I gained valuable knowledge that day. I would love to experience the fair again.

I also had the privilege to volunteer a couple of hours at our local Care Net. Care Net is a crisis pregnancy center. Their missions statement reads, “The mission of CareNet Pregnancy Centers, an outreach ministry of Jesus Christ, is equipping parents, teens and pre-teens to live lives of purpose, ministering to pregnant women and providing support to women and families through education and resources.” I believe strongly in their mission and I loved that I was granted the opportunity to give some of my time there. I was provided with a tour of the facility and provided with information on all of their services. It’s truly a wonderful place for any expectant of current parents to seek love and mentoring. Here comes the fun part, I had the opportunity to sort through baby clothes that had been donated to the centers benevolence program. I just fell in love with all of the teeny tiny clothes. I am so blessed and thankful to have been able to help out in such a crucial part in our community. I have even arranged to continue volunteering my time there.

Serving our community is so important and I am glad that community service hours are something that OC requires of it’s interns. My summer was made so much better because of it.
