Second Week Reflection

At this point, we are just about halfway through the internship, and I can confidently say I'm delighted with it. This week we got the opportunity to represent Volunteer Square at the Brien McMahon Wellness Fair, and it was a great experience. Not only did it give me more experience in talking to others and explaining the organization, but we were able to recruit a vast amount of new students. It was fantastic to see so many people interested in volunteering in their community. On Wednesday, our primary goal was to recruit new volunteers and spread the word more in New Canaan. We walked through New Canaan town with posters and talked to many business owners about Volunteer Square. Many were interested in helping out and allowed us to hang up the signs. Thursday and Friday, we were again at Person-to-Person in Stamford and Darien and assisted with unpacking and organizing goods in the warehouse and on the truck, as well as assisting shoppers. Overall, it has been an exciting week, and I'm looking forward to next week!
