Transcript: I volunteered for two Saturdays. L.I.F.E. Animal Rescue takes all of their dogs to Petsmart every Saturday from 10:00-5:00. My job was to watch the dog that I was assigned to. There were so many volunteers that I only had to watch one. And then as people come by and show interest in the dog you're watching you tell them a bit about the dog. After sitting their for a few hours you already know the personality of the dog you're watching. So you tell the people about their personality, their breed, age, and all of that type of information. The first time I volunteered I watched a beagle dachshund mix. Her name was Courtney and she loved people. She wanted to lick and cuddle with every person that stopped by! The second time I volunteered I had a terrier mix. Her name was Terri. She was a mellow girl. She had a beautiful coat and blue eyes. She was the sweetest and most quiet dog there! It was fun getting to know each dog and the other volunteers. L.I.F.E. is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that relies on donations to keep the organization running Their mission is to rescue homeless & abandoned dogs and cats from the shelter and the streets Since 19992 L.I.F.E. has saved over 6,000 animals from the street! SERVICE My favorite part was being able to volunteer at a place that I strongly agreed with. I love animals especially dogs. We have 4 dogs and I might be getting a new puppy next week from a rescue! So many dogs get killed every day from shelters and that's why I appreciate what these rescues do. It made me feel good to know that by volunteering we were helping these dogs find a loving home. I think service can almost be anything even if it's just animals. Their a part of God's creation and He wants us to take care of them. Proverbs 12:10 says, "Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast, " Unfortunately many people aren't able to take care of their animals. But that's why organizations like L.I.F.E. exist. It's to serve families who can't take care of their loved pets. And we, volunteers, are also serving those families by helping their pets find a good home. VOLUNTEERING COMMUNITY for L.I.F.E. Animal Rescue on 12/7/13 and 12/14/13 @ Petsmart The first Saturday I helped out 4 dogs got adopted! That doesn't sound like much but that's actually a lot for one Saturday! L.I.F.E. Animal Rescue My Favorite Part Got Service? YAY!!!

Transcript: There is a difference between fast and efficient service. Do not continue to do things the same old way because that is “how they are done”. You were hired to use your experience and skills to better the organization – take that challenge seriously. It may not always be possible to say “yes” but the customer must know that you have done everything possible to help them accomplish their goal. Make eye contact, smile, and speak (when appropriate) to every customer you encounter. No exceptions. Customers of government agencies do not choose to do business with us, they have to. The only way to overcome this challenge is to provide exceptional service. The implementation of process improvement requires a global perspective. Know what the agency does. When you do, you will know that your work has purpose and that “That’s not my job” shouldn’t be part of your vocabulary. Ask and offer. Your professionalism is judged based on your appearance, your attitude, your manners, your knowledge, and your abilities. It is a package, fail on just one count and you risk making a bad impression. Use your knowledge, skills, and resources to respect your customers’ time, but never rush – it is disrespectful and it dramatically impacts both the relationship and the outcome. Keep your eyes open. If you see something that doesn’t work the way it should, take steps to make it right or at the very least, call someone’s attention to it. Customers care how many people they have to talk with to get the answers they need. If you need to transfer or hand off a customer, make sure it is to the right person, and be sure you’ve prepared that person to ensure a seamless transition. Your career and your livelihood exist because of the customer in front of you. Be grateful and appreciative. To provide accurate information, you must know your job and have a thorough understanding of agency processes. Engage with your co-workers, ask questions, keep up with your industry. There is always more to learn – attend training when it is offered. Respect your customer’s concerns about dealing with government. Resolving an issue or completing a request may take longer, but acknowledgement of the request should happen the day it is received. Know your business. Do not overpromise or under-deliver. Manage expectations by setting reasonable goals. Give careful thought to timelines and make your word your bond. Moreno Valley Service that Soars Never assume you know what your customer needs. Good questions evoke good answers, but only if you’re listening. Resolve not to interrupt. Exercise patience, be polite, and pay attention. Venture outside your world. There is no better way to gauge your success than to ask for feedback. There is no better way to demonstrate your commitment to the customer than to provide a card and offer your continuing assistance. A customer is not a football. Connect. Keep a bad mood to yourself. Respond within the same day. Say “Thank you”. Remember, first impressions matter. Treat customers like they have a choice. Put a human face on the customer’s dealings with what is often considered a complex bureaucracy. Customers enjoy doing business with people they like and trust. Yes, it is your job to make customers like and trust you. Keep your word. Remember who you work for. Ask, then be quiet and listen. Question the status quo. A customer should NEVER have to deal with your difficult day. Everything is your job.
Transcript: I believe my time was well spent with the children at the Jumpstart Afterschool Program at SAC Prep I built relationships with the children and really enjoyed watching them grow over the course of the year (and last year) about different children's lives (created new bonds with different children, and continued to watch over and talk to the children I created bonds with a year ago - saw growth in their lives) it's an enjoyable way to help the community, connect with people, and learn about other people's experiences and thoughts gave children a safe environment to stay in afterschool it's fun and convenient (you can head there straight afterschool) every Tuesday for about one and a half hours tutoring kids and helping with recreation helping the children learn things and gain skills that may help them in the future.

Transcript: What was your biggest challenge? I volunteered at FISH Edgewood Food Bank I assisted the public that came in for food assistance by explaining the limits of each food item available. My desired outcome was to make sure people got essential food needed for themselves and their families. I volunteered from April 18th through May 16th 2013, I volunteered a total of 25hours and 38 minutes. When Did You Volunteer? I was hoping to help everyone in need especially the children. I was successful by assisting the clients to receive as much help as possible under the current food bank rule. "We Are The World" What was the best part of your volunteer work? How were you successful? The best part of my volunteer work was getting to know the volunteers, other people and being able to help the people in need and the community. The service helped many families by supplementing their household diet & ensure proper nutrition. How did your service affect those you were helping? What was your desired outcome? The biggest challenge for me was communicating. Not everyone speaks English or is fluent in English and I knew that I had to be patient and understanding.
