This week I helped put files away. It was really nice seeing old matches. There was some folders that were filled with papers of past reflections and seeing it was just a reminder how important having a mentor is.
I really enjoy working with Martha, and seeing what she does at the community sites. As I input what the Bigs and Littles goals and activities, I realize how impactful having a mentor is. A lot of the students have big dreams of being doctors and teachers, so having a mentor really helps them realize that is possible to achieve them.
I'm excited to start volunteering this semester. I really appreciate that I can dabble in all parts of BBBS. This semester I'll be going to the Community Sites. I'm excited to have that hands on experience.
I was on the phones sending out thank you calls. It was nice seeing the people I work with once again. It was a nice reminder that I have a home there as well.
I helped verify addresses of companies that have helped or is apart of BBBS. I enjoyed doing it, because I got to see big named business that, was in some way, was a part of BBBS and the help of mentoring kids.
I did my usual phone calls to the donors, but I also called schools throughout Las Vegas. I found it interesting that the schools weren't so giving. To me, it seemed like they weren't ready to give up their Lost and Founds, or they rather hold on to it for reasons unknown to me.
I was on the phones, thanking them for donating to BBBS. I really enjoy listening to other workers communicate with other donors. I can tell I'm learning more communication skills as I progress here
