  • Hello. My name is Arkeisha Keller and my powerpoint is over an educational issue. I chose the topic why volunteering is important. This picture represents one of the student volunteers that helped out on plant a garden day.
  • Volunteering promotes learning through active participation, extends beyond the classroom and improves the community. Thus this is the reason why we should volunteer, because it is a great cause.
  • Most of the time we volunteer because its required, but true volunteering is when you do it out of the goodness of your heart.
  • Many options available to you. You have to find a volunteer opportunity that fits your personality, consider areas of interest in which you are most passionate.
  • This is alist of just a few of the different places that you can volunteer and get involved.
  • These are picture samples of myself in one, helping out at the Big Sisters Big Brothers club, and another photo of students helping cleaning up their community.
  • Volunteering can have a lot of good outcomes not only benefiting the people you had help, but yourself as well.
  • Volunteering helps impact students community awareness, making them become more involved and active. Students that volunteer know more about job opportunities and open their eyes on diversity.
  • Many students donot ever think about “what if” they did not have something. Volunteer makes you not take granted the little things in our own lives, because it might mean a lot to someone else in their life.
  • :More than 80% of mentees have shown improved self-esteem confidences, ability to express feelings and make decisions (Henry).:More than 70% of mentees have shown improved academic performance, attitude, school preparedness, class participation, and classroom behavior (Henry).
  • I know that all the schools in my district have made it mandatory for students to volunteer and have even set up field-trips so that elementary students will get involved a long with their parents as well.
  • Nationwide, school legislative offices are making it so that all high schools and colleges volunteer.
  • You can enjoy volunteering. You meet people from different backgrounds. Do some type of volunteer service that you are interested in, and trust me. It will be a memory that you keep with you forever.
  • Visit the organization in which you are interested in before you make a commitment. Make sure it fits you. Be realistic about how many hrs you are able to volunteer, remembering school comes first. Show up on time and don’t skip scheduled days.
  • This is a group of students that I worked with and the other picture is the Houghton-Jones neighborhood association, a group where students can join and volunteer through out the city. This concludes my presentation. Are there any questions?
  • This is my references and sources where I found all my information and pictures from.
