This is probably going to happen for me very soon! Oh, I hope. I heard about this really interesting organization called On-The-Rise. It is located on a farm! The purpose of the organization is to provide a stable environment for at-risk youth. The kids get to work on the farm in all kinds of ways...they even get to take goods to the local farmer's market! I don't know the first thing about working on a farm, but I'm sure I will learn quickly. And I'm sure I will truly enjoy it, especially if I get to help kids.
09/12/2014 I started volunteering with On-The Rise in August, so I met my deadline! :D I haven't done a whole lot, but I am starting to get the hang of things. I got to wash and package eggs for the first time... I thought it was fun! I have spent much more time with the boys than the girls, so I'm going to try to get in with the girls more this month. I plan to add more updates in the future.
