I learned a lot about the resources available for people in need in the state of Alabama. I gained experience in working in the call center.
I have enjoyed working with Mrs. Weaver. She has been an excellent supervisor. Her passion for Camp Fire shines through her actions and presence. I loved working with the children and the activities that were created for them each week. The most challenging part for me was the time changed for meeting with the kids shortly before the sessions began. It was difficult to get to the school earlier due to traffic and distance. My key takeaway is that volunteering is wonderful. I have gained so much experience in such a short time. This experience has validated my desire to be a social worker.
