Meet Our Counselors | 2018
We asked last year's participants what the best aspect of the Week of service was for them:
"This week was so worthwhile. I wasn't sure what to expect except that [we] would be doing "work, hard work." I learned so much from this week not only about poverty (although my eyes were certainly opened) but about making connections with people. I made connections with people who ran the worksite, with my counselors, with fellow participants, and I'm very grateful for that. I didn't expect to have as much fun as I had, and if I had been on the fence before I came, I'm definitely not now."
"It felt like I was making a difference in this community."
"I came to Auburn from out of state with no friends, and the small size of the group of week of service participants allowed me to work closely with others to make new friends."
"It was amazing to see the effects of poverty, and how people in different situations are doing small things to help others."
"Week of Service allowed me to gain a close group of friends with similar interests before I had to dive right into classes. I think it was incredibly beneficial and fun."
"It allowed for learning as well as making meaningful connections with others."
