Student D journal excerpt:

 

I chose to volunteer at Family Promise because I wanted a unique experience with a group of individuals I have never worked with before. Not to say that volunteering in a classroom or after school program is mundane or unchallenging, but I am familiar and comfortable  with the setting inside a school. As an individual who seeks and craves new opportunities, I knew that Family promise was the right choice the minute I stepped foot into the day center.
