The 2010 summer was one of my best summers ever. I was able to relish in the joys of WorkcampNE. The week I attended felt like just a few short days. It was over before I even knew it. Community service, bonding with area residents, mentoring highschool students were just some of the experiences I was able to have during this week. I felt fulfilled after this week was over and it transferred over to my home life.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching these highschool students go from worrying about getting paint in their hair to really taking time to get to know our residents. Not only did the residents benefit from the week but the highschool students benefited also!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
add more weeks of camp for these students and give the organization more money for continuing their work.
Volunteer & I was a co-leader of a group of 4 highschool students who went and painted a house for an elderly couple in the area.
