JROTC SERVICE LEARNING PROJECT
Transcript of JROTC SERVICE LEARNING PROJECT
(BBBS at Balmoral Elementary School)
HOW OUR PROJECT HAS HELPED THE COMMUNITY AND US
Our project was to help mentor kids and to motivate them to try their best at whatever they do. We went to help them with homework and any other problems they might be facing. The project has helped us by teaching us patience and also the responsibility that comes with being a role model.
We helped students realize how important it is to be focused in school, and we tried to keep them motivated in the process. Not only did we teach, but we also learned something. We gained patience from this experience, and we also had to be understanding. These skills helped build our character.
TEAM MEMBERS AND TEAM ROLES
Our model of service was a Project Model. In our JROTC book it states: "Service learning projects are initiated and planned by cadets with instructor guidance. Tutoring elementary children in subjects you are currently studying or starting a recycling program based on information from your geography lessons are examples of service learning projects"
(Chpt. 8 Lesson 1 Page 244).
On the day that we were assigned the Service Learning Project, in class we discussed all of the options that we had for this. We tried to volunteer at the zoo, but they had no open positions so we decided to volunteer at Big Brothers Big Sisters.
On our first day of Big Brothers Big Sisters as a group, Ms. Tunya Alexander made us sign contracts and other papers to have documentation of us there. She then discussed rules and expectations of us. After that we were paired up with a "little" as they call it, and were instructed to begin with homework. When homework was finished we could play games with our new littles.
This was a great experience. I honestly would recommend that everyone become a Big Brother or Big Sister to a child at any school. Some children do not have that many people to look up to, and it is very beneficial to them. I (Bria) have been in this program since I was a freshman, and honestly it has been the best decision I have ever made.
Our team actually got along very well. We get along usually so this project was just the same. It was the most fun that we have had out of all the other service learning projects. The only downside was that because of Tiara's pregnancy, she couldn't really participate with our group and meeting us.
Our Project Report is attached to our Service Learning Packet.
