Week 1 Journal Entries

If a volunteer experience has yet to be confirmed, please submit a 250-300 word summary describing your preferred experience. As a part of your summary, include the duties or skills that you seek to develop. Also, include what you hope to attain from the experience.

Otherwise, if an experience has been confirmed, please create a new journal entry for each day that you volunteer. Be sure to include the day, date, and time period that you worked that day as the first line. Please put this information in bold font. Also, write a paragraph that describes the type of duties you carried out that day (what you did, who else was there, whether you were a part of a team or were working alone, etc.). Once each week, focus on one particular event or aspect of your work that week and describe why you found this particular task or event to be unusual or of special interest. In a 250-300-word entry, relate this aspect of your volunteer experience to some specific knowledge that you have previously gained in your coursework to this point.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
